U.S. Medium Tank M4A3E8 Sherman "Easy Eight" Korean War

Tamiya, 1/35 scale
by Brett Green


Here is what will almost certainly be my last completed model for 2017. It is Tamiya's 1/35 scale M4A3E8 "Easy Eight" Korean War Sherman, due for release soon.



I built this one completely from the box including the decals and the jerry cans and spare ammo cases included with the kit. The only addition was the radio operator figure in the front hatch. I think this guy is from an old Nemrod set (I'd used the others in the set for a previous project).


Tamiya's two turret crew figures are realistically posed and beautifully sculpted. They were a pleasure to work on. Actually, the whole kit was a pleasure to work on!

Paint is four shades of Mission Models’ Olive Drab.


I'll be writing this up for a big article in Issue 143 of Model Military International magazine.
