About this kit:
The Sherman was the mainstay of the Allied armored units, with over 40,000 produced from 1942 onwards. The ubiquitous Sherman was to be found in the ranks of every Allied army in World War II and on every front.
One of the most easily distinguishable variants was the M4A1, which utilized a cast hull rather than the welded hull of the others. Later, a 76mm gun was introduced to give the tank more lethality against heavily armored German opponents, but this required installation of a new turret big enough to carry the gun. When combined together – the M4A1 hull, 76mm gun and turret – the M4A1(76)W was conceived.
