Modeling the Sherman Tank in 1/72nd Scale
M4A2 early (direct vision) Modell Trans
Kit #72343
Article by Doug Chaltry; last updated 11 September 2011
For this conversion kit, Modell Trans converted a Dragon M4A2 early hull by adding the direct vision slots in front of the crew's armored hoods, replacing the built-in periscopes from the plastic kit. The work was expertly done, and this hull piece will be a drop fit onto a Dragon M4A2 Sherman kit. Fitting other kits may be problematic, as it seems that not two plastic Sherman kits are exactly the same size (and this is also true between Dragon kits). There are no casting flaws in the resin, just a couple of broken fender parts, the pieces of which are still in the zip-lock bag.
