Product description

Use the Italeri M4A3E8 Model Kit to recreate this impressive tank.

The M4 Sherman medium tank was the primary tank used by the United States during World War II. It has been produced in a significant number of units and it formed the backbone of United Stated armoured forces during at that time. It has been produced in several variants and versions; the production of the M4A3E8 versions started at the end of 1944.

The M4A3E8, adopting the nickname Easy Eight, took several technical improvements enhancing the Sherman operational effectiveness. The 76mm M1 high velocity gun had been flanked by a new horizontal volute spring suspension (HVSS) system able to ensure a better driving condition and to guarantee a higher speed. The “Easy Eight” participated to the final stages of World War II and took active part in the Korean War.

This kit is perfect for a gift for any passionate model enthusiast - or perhaps a project for you. Construct this model to recreate this unique aircraft, and paint it to bring it to life!

4.5 Stars4.3 / 5
Italeri M4A3E8 Model Kit 1:35 is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Build your own "Fury" tank Good kit from Italeri. Plenty of extra items you will lose building the kit in your carpet, added onto the sprues. HVSS suspension is not for the faint hearted to build. Hull needs aligning before glueing. But if you have filler you will be ok. You can build Fury, or two other versions of the Easy 8 Sherman. I will advise that the string provided to hold the logs on is not long enough. I used some of my own cotton. And the main gun and machine guns are difficult to not glue solid. I found it a harder build than say some of the easier kits on the market. Took me two evenings just to paint everything before construction. But for an intermediate level builder or above this will not be a problem. A beginner may find it a bit on the harder side to complete. I would advise that the tracks supplied fit very easily, are of correct length, but fit to the hull first before gluing the top on. And super glue the sprocket and idler wheel hubs to the hull before fitting the tracks. Avoids pulling the wheels inwards. Apart from these minor issues, I would have given five stars.
