Modeling the Sherman Tank in 1/72nd Scale
Kit #72002
Article by Doug Chaltry; last updated 27 August 2018
A very small but useful set. It consists of only the engine access grates, brush guards for headlights and tailights, and some details for the .30 and .50cal machineguns -- all items that are best reproduced as etched parts -- so no wasted brass here. Although the set is labeled for the HäT (Armourfast) M10, in theory it could be used for any M10 on the market. I say "in theory" because no two kits have identical dimensions for their engine access grates. My measurements show this piece is just a hair on the large side (13.5 x 15.0mm - should be 13.0 x 14.0), which makes it perfectly compatible with the Armourfast kit. It may also be useful in correcting other kits that have overly small access grates.
