Good review but I don't think this kit is for me, I recently built the 1/48 Tamiya M4A1 and nearly went insane working with the small parts and that was without the PE I don't know how you braille scale guys do it

Hi Sven,

Thanks for the review. I've got three on order so I'll be getting into em myself soon too. The only thing I'm hestitant on is the restrictive markings Dragon chose .........

I agree with the review, the only thing that I would add is that the road wheels included in the kit are incorrect for this version of Sherman. They should be open spoked and not solid. To the best of my knowledge I don't believe that DML offers a Sherman in 1/72 with this style of road wheel, they are all solid. Some of the PE is flimsy as well, however I would rather attempt to deal with it then not have it at all.

I also don't like the moulded on tools.
