Modeling the Sherman Tank in 1/72nd Scale

M4 Sherman Mid Production Detail Set
Kit #22119

Article by Doug Chaltry; last updated 18 November 2007.

Designed with the Trumpeter M4 Mid-Production kit in mind. It includes:

  • lift rings and hatch handles
  • headlight and periscope guards
  • .50cal machingun details and ammo box
  • front fenders and side skirt mounting rails
  • track return skids
  • pioneer tools and attachment racks

Although this set cannot correct the main flaw of the Trumpeter kit (incorrect front hull angle), it includes a great many parts that will be useful for any Sherman kit. I am particularly impressed with the track return skids, which I feel that all Sherman etched brass detail sets should include, as these are almost impossible to adequately represent in molded plastic.
