1/35 R/C Tank Series No.17


Length: 172 mm. Image shows painted and assembled kit.

An Allied Mainstay
With around 50,000 units produced, the Sherman tank was a durable and successful design, and the M4A3 arguably represents its zenith; utilizing a welded hull and highly reliable V8 gasoline engine, M4A3s can be split into early and late production variants, with the late production M4A3 sporting single plate frontal armor for improved survivability, a dedicated loader's hatch, and wet ammunition storage bins. M4A3s fitted with the 75mm main gun were present on the European mainland after the Normandy landings, and also active in the Pacific Theater.

About the Model
The M4 Sherman tank was a mainstay of the ultimately victorious Allied war effort in WWII; among the models in the Sherman series was the M4A3, recreated by this R/C model assembly in 1/35 scale. Its compact R/C equipment lets you perform turns and pivots in addition to forward and reverse motion, as well as turret rotation and gun elevation, while assembly type tracks ensure that the model runs realistically and looks truly authentic. Model parts are molded in plastic and can be weathered much as one would a static model for a really impressive finish.
