DESCRIPTION

TAMIYA 1/48 EAST EIGHT

U.S. Medium Tank M4A3E8 Sherman “Easy Eight”

The “Easy Eight” rolls into accessible 1/48 scale! This subject, which has proven popular in 1/35, is a welcome addition to the 1/48 Military Miniature Series, and is depicted as it appeared in the European Theater of WWII.
One of the final Sherman types, it had the benefit of design updates developed from battle experience including a  hardy  welded  late  production  hull,  76mm  main  gun,  and  new  Horizontal Volute  Spring  Suspension  (HVSS) with wider tracks, making for the significantly more comfortable ride that led to its nickname of “Easy Eight.”
