Thanks for the news... don't really figure out how the Sherman 75 mm canvas up-date works ? Do PA expect that we cut the front of the turret to add their resin part ?

I rather stay with the lovely Resicast's choice which just fit in/on the mantlet "et voil" !

You need the look at the picture closer. The turret section is surely a plastic piece that is being used to display the resin parts. It seems obvious to me that the kit includes only the covered mantlet and barrel, not the turret section.

I hope you are right Jon but on the first picture for the 75 mm M4 canvas, there is like a continuous mold flash (resin ?) on both the canvas and the turret... but as you said, simplicity should be a separate covered mantlet and barrel....

anyway a lot of new stuff from PA and it's welcome !

will you also consider some 1/72 releases? I feel the thread pattern (chunkiness) on many plastic 1/72 scale kits let them down.

The jeep wheels are missing the central circular hole and pressed rim that the wheel hubs pass through.

Thanks
Maybe those details should be visible on a 1/35th wheel, even if the gaps are small. What could it be in 1/35? Something like 0.1 mm (1/25th of an inch)
Maybe a thin line of black paint in the corners could give the impression of a small gap. Or weather the rims with some dirt to fill/cover the missing gaps

You're right - never noticed that until I really enlarged the picture. It would seem illogical to mold it this way and one thing PA is bad for is not giving you all the information in their images.

Strange that PA addressed the typographical error on the fuel drums but not the questionable Sherman turret....

I forgot to link the image properly again.

I think it would be a good idea for PA to add a rolled edge to the center of the wheel to show some separation between the hub and the wheel. Weathering can cover it up, but it would still have that flat look, like the wheel and hub are one piece.

M923 wheels are for A2 versions because of CTIS part on the rim, I'm right ?

I suspect it is a replica made for firing propane. The color is OD more or less, with dust coating it? Hard to tell from the picture.

The Jeep is an M38.
