Product Description

M4A3E2 Jumbo Assault Sherman, Medium Tank. Welded Hull, Cast Turret.

Heisers Lakewood Military Models 5038. Unassembled, unpainted plastic / resin kit. New, 1/87 scale.

The M4A3E2 Sherman "Jumbo" assault tank variant, based upon a standard M4A3(75)W hull, had an additional 38 mm (1.5 in) plate welded to the glacis, giving a total thickness of 102 mm (4.0 in), which resulted in a glacis of 149 mm (5.9 in) line-of-sight thickness, and over 180 mm (7.1 in) effective thickness. The sponson sides had 38 mm (1.5 in) thick plates welded on, to make them 76 mm (3.0 in) thick. The transmission cover was significantly thicker, and a new, more massive T23-style turret with 178 mm (7.0 in) of armor on the sides and rear and a 25.4 mm (1 in) thick flat roof. The gun mantlet had an additional 89 mm (3.5 in) of armor welded on giving a total thickness of 177.8 mm. It was originally to be armed with the 76 mm gun, but the 75 mm was preferred for infantry support and was used, although some were later upgraded to use the 76 mm.

This kit of the Jumbo version of the Sherman tank, contains both 75mm gun and the 76.2mm gun, the up-armored welded hull and the up-armored cast turret.
