Default Deep Wading Sherman Salerno 43

This is my my interpretation of a famous picture of an M4A1from the 119th Tank Battalion with deep wading gear after landing at the beach in Salerno in 1943. This tank uses the MATO full metal bottom with the long out of production MATO M4A1 plastic upper. My good friend Tom T. 3D printed me the wading gear. The front 3 Piece transmission cover, the IR kit, stowage, is from DGS Military Hobby. Thanks to Big Mike for the 3D printed mounting internals. The tank is powered by a TK50sbus board that, as I explained in the video, going to be replaced with the proper engine sounds. have a few details to add and gotta fix those taillights!!! LOL! As always subscribe to see lots of different and unique 1/16 RC Tank videos!
