First Look

This item is typical of their range in 1/35; I have not seen the 1/72 and 1/48 scale offerings, but the 1/35 ones are very nice and relatively inexpensive for what the modeler gets.

This is the 76mm ammo for the late model Sherman with the M1 series of guns. The kit offers 12 two piece rounds for the gun – projo and casing – and provides for four each of the three main types: HE-FRAG, AP, and APCBC. Detailed color painting instructions are provided, and they will really set off a diorama of "bombing up" a Sherman. (Note that the original rounds were unitary, so they have to be assembled for use!)

Overall, this company appears to offer very good value for the money and should do well. Currently the American distributor is Chesapeake Model Designs, PO Box 393, Monkton, MD 21111 or check out their listing at
