1/16 Sherman M4A3E8

Posted by Paul On March - 6 - 2000

3/5/2023 This is my completed model of the WWII Sherman M4A3E8 tank produced by Andy's Hobbies.  I've been wanting to build a 1/16 sherman for a long time and this model is fantastic, and the price is very attractive.  The model itself is great – well molded, no flash and really went together without any problems.  There are a lot of parts that make up the tracks, and each part needs to be carefully cleaned up from the sprue attachments.  I use Tamiya's cutting plyers which are very nice for cutting parts off of sprues, but there always seems to be a little claenup required.  I used Tamiya "Weathering Master" sets to add some weathering.  External stowage was supplied by ValueGear and are very nice resin castings.  They lend a lot to the realism.  On to the photos….
