Default Tamiya M4A3E8 Easy Eight Sherman

Here are some photos of my recently completed Tamiya M4A3E8 Easy Eight Sherman. Mato turret with correct diameter replacement barrel, round loaders hatch replaced with oval hatch, Imperial-Modellbau rear deck grille, and Nick Agular's transmission housing & rear exhaust deflector.

Very nice.....especially the detailing on the pioneer tools with nice coloring on the wooden handles. Same comment on rusty end connectors. Are you going to glass in the TC cupola vision blocks? Micro Mark puts out a very nice bottle of galze that does a nice job.
