M4A3(75)W, a standard tank used by the US Army during WWII. It featured a 75mm M3 gun, as well as wet stowage (this is what the æWÆ refers to) to retard fire and protect rounds stored inside the hull
Dragon previously launched a stunning 1/6 plastic model kit of an M4A3 105mm
howitzer before. Now Dragon has taken the next step and is offering a kit of the
M4A3(75)W, a standard tank used by the US Army during WWII. It featured a 75mm
M3 gun, as well as wet stowage (this is what the ‘W’ refers to) to retard
fire and protect rounds stored inside the hull. The kit depicts a tank with the
vertical volute suspension system (VVSS). This Sherman is another big release
for Dragon, portraying the regular gun tank rather than the howitzer. The model
thus looks more lethal and powerful, utilizing new components such as the gun
shield and 75mm barrel. Modelers will find that this satisfying kit fits
together precisely. The road wheels rotate, and the tracks with individual links
are well designed and well engineered so as to be both durable and realistic.
Owners can traverse the turret and elevate and depress the gun towards any
target they select. The commander’s and loader’s hatches also open and
close. Modelers can gain more firepower with this Sherman M4A3(75)W available in
1/6 scale for the very first time!
