Product Description

U.S. WWII, Sherman M4A3E8 "EASY EIGHT", w/ 76mm Gun.

Heiser's Models 5035. Resin and Plastic, 1/87 Kit Unfinished.

This model version is a late production with the 76mm gun in the late gun turret, 47 degree front glacis and HVSS tracks.

The M4 Sherman, officially Medium Tank, M4, was the most widely used medium tank by the United States and Western Allies in World War II. The M4 Sherman proved to be reliable, relatively cheap to produce, and available in great numbers.

Nicknamed the "Easy Eight," from the E8 variation code identifying the HVSS suspension. Introduced in 1944, this was upgraded with wide track HVSS, fitted with the 76mm M1A2 cannon, improved armor and firepower and wet stowed ammunition. The tank was still in service well after 1945, seeing service in the Korean War, Vietnam War and under many other flags.

After World War II, the U.S. kept the M4A3E8 '"Easy Eight" in service, with either the 76 mm gun or a 105 mm M4 howitzer.

Not every Sherman tank with a 76mm gun was an "Easy Eight".

 This item is an unassembled and unpainted Resin kit with some plastic parts. Instructions included. The factory photos may show it as a fully assembled and painted model.  Paint, glue, and decals not included but can be purchased separately.

   This model is for collectors and model makers from 14 years and older. It is not a toy.

   We carry in stock everything you need to finish your kit including tools, paint spray guns, adhesives / glue, decals and many reference and modeling books.
