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, applique 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.
A rare, comprehensive guide to Sherman tanks and modeling options. A unique blend of portfolio and how-to information. Continued interest in World War II makes this book highly desirable to modelers.
