The large transmission cover casting includes the separation line between the two bolted flanges holding the three sections together as well as perfectly formed bolt head details on the flanges and top securing strip.
Other detail include casting numbers in five locations including the insides of the final drive housings and the drain plugs on the undersides of the FD housings and central cover as well as the two towing lugs with weld seams.
The large casting block on the back of the casting does not need to be removed if you aren’t building a kit with interior as this simply slips inside the front of the lower hull pan on the Dragon kit.
Included with the transmission cover are alternate front fenders and drive sprocket axles to allow the cover to be used on either the Academy, Italeri, Dragon or Tamiya Sherman kits with some minor modifications needed depending on which kit is chosen and a small instruction sheet describes the alterations needed for each kit.
