The Sherman M4A3 is the fourth version of the M4 Sherman tank; the M4A3 has a welded hull and is powered by a Ford GAA V8 gasoline engine.  The M4A3(75)W is armed with a 75mm medium-velocity general-purpose gun and uses 'wet' ammunition bins to store the 75 mm rounds.  Italeri produces a 1/72 scale (20mm) ‘fast assembly’ Sherman M4A3 75mm kit, which allows you to build two M4A3(75)W tanks.

As a way of making each tank look unique, I added logs and tank stowage components to one of the tanks.  These pieces produced by Value Gear, a company specializing in resin military model bits.

Citizen Soldiers: A 1/72 scale World War 2 Model Site

Citizen Soldiers: A 1/72 scale World War 2 Model Site is devoted to the hobby of painting and collecting World War 2 models/miniatures.  It is my hope, through creating this website, to honour the men and women who served in the Second World War, whose sacrifices and courage have given us the freedom and quality of life we have today.
