This is the Tamiya 1/48th scale M4 Sherman. I started working on this model a few weeks ago and I was just able to get it finished this week. It has been a helpful distraction.
The model is very easy to build, much easier than the M10. You can build it as an up-armored version or the original configuration, without all the applique armor. I am working on a 1943-44 US army so the additional armor was needed.
Below is a comparison between the Corgi 1/50th (which i have several) and the Tamiya 1/48th. There are only very slight differences in size. Not enough of a difference to keep me from using both of these models in the same game.
Below is another comparison shot, this time a historical shot and a picture of the Sherman with BTD 28mm US soldiers. I think this is a good match and will be fine for gaming.
Next up is the Tamiya M4A1 Sherman, which is my favorite version of this tank.
