Go for it, I ordered a $220 pair of sunnies today, if I can get away with that you can get away with a 1/35 AIFV.

Ya reckon? ???

I ask for a $350 watch for Christmas (on sale) & it's no biggie, I ask for a $50 model & it's like I've broken all Seven Mortal Sins with Satan as my wingman. :-\

SWMBO does realise you are referring to styrene models and not flesh and blood ones?

Unfortunately, yep ... & then she'd get her doing the dishes & the housework, so she'd be too knackered to be interested in doing the wild thang even if she was into pudgy old men. :icon_crap:

That’s cool but I don’t know that it’s a “must buy” for me even though I’m a Sherman Easy 8 fan. There have been versions of this tank made by Academy, Dragon, Asuka, Tamiya and Italeri, so unless it has some really outstanding features like maybe a full interior, there’s not necessarily much incentive for me to get it.

As an aside, I think some other company (maybe Takom?) announced a VVSS version of this tank.

Hmm, I'm intrigued by the "workable track links & torsion bars" as the M4A3E8 had Horizontal Volute Spring Suspension (HVSS)! ::)

Good pick up.  Here's some more details showing what they probably meant to say:




And whilst there was a M4 trialed with torsion bars, it wasn't the M4A3E8 but rather this:
