Product Description

Product Description

The best known of all the American Tanks, the M4 Sherman was designed in 1941 as an improvement on the earlier Lee and Grant meduim tanks, and embodied the results of careful study of tank warfare in the first years of World War II. The M4 Sherman was the primary tank used by the Allies during World War II. Thousands were also distributed via lend-lease, including the British Commonwealth and Soviet armies. Britain named the M4 (MkI) after General William Tecumseh Sherman, following the British practice of naming their American-built tanks after famous American Civil War generals. Subsequently the British name found its way into common use in the U.S. Over 50,000 were produced.

This is a plastic model kit which requires construction and painting (paints, glue and brushes will have to be purchased separately).

Durability: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
My 8 year old son has just discovered Airfix and loves it. This tank was great but a little small and fiddly for small hands, so my advice would be to buy a larger model for younger children. However Airfix rocks!

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic 15 Oct 2012
By Rain E Whittaker - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This was a good buy; not the best, but more than decent. The pieces fit together quite well, not too much flash or extra plastic. The wheels were really hard to align right for the treads, and because of my failure in this regard my Sherman turned out looking like it had just driven down a rocky mountain. My main complaint was that one of the decals on the side of the gun turret did not fit right. The plastic surface was way too bumpy and irregular, and the decal ended up wonky. Also, the smaller decals on the rear of the tank came off easily. Unfortunately, this is just one of the things that has to be put up with, unless one wants to spend a bunch of money on products to enhance the decals' sadly lacking sticking quality. Lastly, this set is in 1:76 scale. This seemed to me like a mistake, as most of Airfix's other products are in 1:72 scale. The difference in size may seem small, but it really does make a difference. The Airfix U.S. Marines I bought to go with the tank looked too big for the tank, and thus any feeling of a real battlefield scene was lost.
3.0 out of 5 stars great for kids over the age of 9 2 Oct 2013

This really is a great product, however I didn't realize how tiny the pieces were!! My 9 year old was supposed to build this for a project but my husband ended up doing nearly the whole thing! It looked great after it was done though.
4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for enormous battles 18 Aug 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This tank is small so don't expect some big'oll tank. The detail on the tank is spectacular, but good enough. This is a good tank to create a massive battle diorama, nothing smaller. You will probably have trouble with the track pads, if you glue them together then lite it on fire they fit on the tank's wheels. The only con is the price, it should be maybe $2 or $3 dollars less but $8 is good enough for me.

This was not what I was expecting to receive. I was very disappointed with it seeing as it was very small and not challenging to my grandson.
