Thatís cool but I donít know that itís a ďmust buyĒ for me even though Iím 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, thereís 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:

The details shown look great but, "Oh, my giddy aunt!" (as my mother used to say), those workable tracks! 8) :o
