Your T-34 arguement is easy to back up, even the Russians used them alongside their T-34s. I don't think T-34s were used during WW2 in the Western Desert, or the Pacific or Western Europe.

The Large Roundel goes on the engine deck of all the variants given and the samll roundel goes on the turret top. These were air to ground recognition markings and the engine deck one frequently got covered hence the turret top one being adapted. I still prefer the Tasca kit of this variant but this one is one of the best DML Shermans and a very detailed kit. It is a minor modification of the old Cyber Hobby M4A2 DV which had M3 Bogies.

Great review. I picked up one of these at the weekend in a shop sale. Looks to be a good kit, although complicated. Would have been nice to gave the option of building it without the sand shields. I really don't like working with etch and those curved sections fill me with dread! I'll have to check my references but I don't think they lasted long in the field. Looking forward to building it though, never built anything from the Italian front.
