This model assembly kit depicts the Korean War variant of the M4A3E8 "Easy Eight" Sherman. This kit variant includes new parts!

The Sherman – reliable and available in huge numbers - was a game changer for the Allies in WWII, and the Easy Eight a prevalent variant most notable for its horizontal volute spring suspension (HVSS) and smooth ride. The Easy Eight's career did not end with WWII, however, as a number were refurbished and thrown back into action by a largely demobilized U.S. Army in the Korean War from 1950. They faced off against T34/85s operated by the Korean People's Army with great success and were later often used in a supporting fire role.

 Specifications:

  • The Easy Eight is captured with great detail, with special attention to Korean War-specific features such as the mantlet’s canvas cover.
  • Includes depictions of late production exhaust deflector, refined engine deck, and field telephone.
  • Separate parts are included to depict accessories such as first aid kit, updated travel lock, spare track links and more. Slide-molded M2 machine gun and mount parts offer excellent detail.
  • Belt parts recreate double-pin T80 tracks with realism and ease of assembly.
  • Light lenses and cupola sight holes are recreated using clear parts.
  • Comes with 2 torso figures, which recreate crew in action pose.
  • 2 markings options include the famed "Rice's Red Devils", with new colors based upon the most up-to-date reference sources.
  • Marking option 1: "Rice's Red Devils, C Company, 89th Tank Battalion, 25th Infantry Division, 1951
  • Marking option 2: C Company, 70th Heavy Tank Battalion, 1st Cavalry Division, 1950
  • Parts are also included to assemble an accompanying model of the Russian Field Car GAZ67B (Item 35021).
