Of all the Allied armor of WWII, one tank stands out: the M4 Sherman medium battle tank. This comprehensive book is both a how-to construction guide, as well as a portfolio. The first half of the book covers a beginner’s basic buildup of a simple Sherman and progresses to a full-on customized Sherman from a resin kit. Along the way, readers will learn about all the details that distinguish this iconic tank—tracks, guns, appliqué armor, and paint schemes—to make the most realistic Sherman models possible. The second half of the book is a gallery of the author’s own models—47 in all! Includes 250 color photos.
