This model kit requires assembly. Cement, paint and other construction materials not included unless specifically stated in the description.
The M4A2 Sherman was similar to the M4, with welded hull and cast turret, but was powered by twin GM 6-71 diesel engines. Having a diesel engine, the M4A2 version's engine deck and back end is noticeably different from all other Sherman tanks. Early production models had the M3 75mm gun in the M34 gun mount and vision slots in the front armor plate. The mount was later replaced by the M34A1 gun mount, which featured a direct telescope. Some versions were armed with a 76mm gun. In later productions, the return rollers were moved to the rear of the bogie mount and the suspension was the horizontal volute spring type. The M4A2 saw action in the European & Pacific theaters and was mainly used by the U.S. Marines and lend-lease to the Soviet Union, British and Free-French. Over 8,000 M4A2's were produced during the middle of WWII.
This highly detailed Academy model will take you into battle with the U.S. Marines. The M4A2 is brought to life with a very accurate hull and 75mm turret. Plank armor and fording trunk are incorporated. Hatches can be selectively open or closed. The included "L.A. Bound" decal set is a tribute to the realism built into this fine model.
