Product Description

1:160 (N) - SHERMAN TANK  M4A3e8

Overview
This is a small scalemodel of the famous American Sherman M4A3e8 tank, (also known as "Easy Eight") for N scale model railroads.  It can be used as a load on flat rail cars for military shipment by freight train,  perhaps as a monument in a small village, part of a movie-set or in a battle scene...  This version was also used in the movie 'Fury' (2014) with Brad Pitt.​  Link to my other 1/160 models

Features
The model is designed to be printed in 4 parts;
- The turret can be rotated in any direction.
- The barrel has to be glued in place, so you can place it in any position you like.
- Machine gun has to be glued on top of the turret (very small part).
- Model is based on blueprints to maximize accuracy.
- Designed and optimized for shapeways to produce it as cheap as possible in 'frosted detail'.

Painting
Before painting, always degrease your model in a glass of lukewarm water and a drop of dishwashing soap (do not use a dishwasher!).  Allow it to dry completely before painting.
Aplie a thin layer of paint, and use 'drybrush' techniques to bring the detail alive.
If you don't have a lot of experience; watch multiple 'tutorials' on youtube about painting model tanks.  You can't rush art, so be patient and take your time to finish the model ;).

Scale  1:160
1:160 is N-scale for model railroads.


Thanks for stopping by & have fun!
