Sandbag soft armor & Sherman Upgrade
Gaso.Line Kit #48018
1:48 Scale
Review by Terry Ashley

TamiyaThis is a simple update for the Tamiya M4 Sherman (kit #32505) which consists of three large casting with sandbag armour for the sides and front plates of the Sherman.

Each section has many sandbags that include nice surface texture and sticting as well as other items in between such as the off storage box and spare road wheel and the supporting framework on the sides.

The sandbag sections fit perfectly to the Tamiya hull with the side sections overlapping the top slightly for a blended in look while the front section is the fitted over the side section and again fit perfectly to the glacis details.

Also included in the set are the turret and hull hatches from set GAS48031 as well as the metal M3 75mm barrel to add additional details to the kit.

Another simple update set to add a different feel to the kit with the inclusion of the excellent hatches and 75mm barrel a nice bonus.

Highly recommended.
