Product Description

1:160 (N) - SHERMAN TANK  M4a1

This is a small scalemodel of the famous American Sherman M4a1 tank 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...   The 'M4a1' version was the first Sherman in U.S. service (first appearance: North African campaign).   Link to my other 1/160 models

The model is designed to be printed in 3 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.
- The hull is designed with soft rounded forms, typical for the M4a1 version.
- Model is based on blueprints to maximize accuracy.
- Designed and optimized for shapeways to produce it as cheap as possible in 'frosted detail'.

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!
