The M4 Sherman is the most famous American tank of WWII, and more than 50,000 examples of the medium tank were produced. It formed the backbone of innumerable American, British and Commonwealth armored formations. The popular Sherman was thus the logical choice when Dragon's design team sought a subject for their next 1/6 scale plastic kit project. This type was a welded-hull tank powered by a 500hp Ford GAA V8 gasoline engine, and it mounted a 75mm gun . The M4A3 was the preferred variant for the US Army, meaning it was widely used in WWII.
This Sherman is a big release for Dragon in more ways than one. It's big on accurate details, and although some moldings are large, there is no deformation of parts. Modelers will find this satisfying kit fits together precisely. The road wheels rotate, and the tracks with individual links are well-designed and well-engineered so as to be both durable and realistic. For greater interest, the tracks come with new duckbills that were used to improve traction on soft ground. Owners can traverse the turret and elevate and depress the gun towards any target they select.
