Modelling the US Army M4 (76mm) Sherman Medium Tank

Modelling the US Army M4 (76mm) Sherman Medium Tank cover


The Sherman tank was the principal US and Allied tank of World War II - more Shermans were built than all German tanks combined. Not only were large numbers of Shermans manufactured, but a large number of variants emerged, powered by different types of engines and with different types of hulls, turrets and other details, making it an ideal subject for any modeller.

Steven J Zaloga, an expert armor modeller, takes on the Sherman tank in this book, providing a guide to four variants across a range of skill levels. Used in every theater in which the Allies operated, the Sherman employed differing camouflage and was affected by a variety of different weathering and color schemes and weathering techniques which are examined and illustrated with lavish full color step-by-step photographs.
