  1. Henry Otto

    All parts are there and instructions as well as decals. Very happy with this model. I bought 3 and they are “all there”. Can build 3 different versions of the tank.

  2. Albert Chen

    This is the second issue of a well designed, and accurate model of the M4 or Sherman I. The kit provides plenty of alternative parts for the modeler to build variations (i. e. 3 different transmission covers, two types of road wheels, etc). The tracks are the one piece rubber band type, which is suitable for most modelers. However, they require super glue or heat. In comparison to the new Airfix Sherman Vc Firefly, it has better details and provides options for open hatches. In comparison to Dragon, the parts fit better and modular, but only lack casting texture and weld beads (difficult to see in this scale anyway). Highly recommended from a small scale modeler who builds almost exclusively Sherman tanks.

  3. Wayne Martin

    Its a nice model with three choices to model, clear painting instructions, But no assembly instructions!!!. Pity

  4. Thrud Fan

    (As is common in nearly all model kits you get no paint or glue with this and they recommend superglue for the tank tracks)
    For the price this is a great little kit that comes with three different build options. Once finished kit measures only 3 inches long.
    The molding is quite crisp with very little flash.
    All the tools are separate instead of molded directly onto the hull making them easier to paint but a bit of a faff to assemble as they are so small with some very thin parts that are easy to break. On the whole the kit is okay to assemble but probably not for the complete beginner.
    This is due to the way the instructions are laid out, the various build options, some small and fiddly parts and some very poor transfers. I would go for the new Airfix Sherman Firefly as a much easier build, although it is a tad more expensive.
    A word about the transfers: they are very thick, difficult to make conform to curved surfaces (even when using a setting solution), some of mine fell off the backing paper before I even got them in the water and others tore as I was trying to place them. I am lucky I picked the colour scheme with the fewest to use. You may want to get some aftermarket ones and save a lot of hassle. Would have been 4* but only 3* from me because of the transfers.

    Great kit,well detailed with no flash. Generous decals for 3 units. My kit came minus the instruction sheet so ill have to find a download. Does come with an excellent paint guide,shame the packer mistook this for the instructions. The Sherman comes with the D-Day ‘ breather’ chimneys for the coastal landing. Optional of course. I think this is a modern tooling. Very good. May get the French 2nd Armoured Div version too featuring the units that stormed onto the ‘Eagle Nest’ stronghold. That will solve the instruction sheet problem too! First Heller tank,very impressed.

  6. Winterhawk

    Model came with no instructions and broken parts. No Customer Service with Heller website.

  7. Des B (Redviking)

    Firstly this model is NOT for beginners. This is a highly detailed kit with lots of small parts. This kit offers three different version of this tank. once chosen at times its not easy to see which part is for which version. Many small parts at times makes this a little frustrating, but if you hang in there you are rewarded with a highly detailed model which you can treasure.

  8. Magic turtle

    I like the fact that this model has the deep wading gear for D-day but the plans are confusing at best.
