Modeling the Sherman Tank in 1/72nd Scale
US Army Shermans in ETO vol. 1 Toro Model
Set #72D51
Article by Doug Chaltry; last updated 30 December 2023
This set is a departure for Toro Model, as it is printed on a laser printer instead of the standard screen printing method of their prior decal sets. On the one hand, this makes for much sharper edges to the printed markings, but the downside is that it is printed on a continuous layer of decal film, so care must be taken when trimming the decals. Markings are included for five vehicles listed in the table below, a couple of which are new to this scale.

The quality of the printing is much higher than it appears in the below scan. Click on the image to see another version of it for which I adjusted the brightness and contrast to better show the markings.
