First Look

TGMA has just released a new item in their catalog - this being a simple conversion for Tamiya's 1/48 M4 Sherman kit. This turret represents the earlier type without the pistol port. The turret is a solid casting with an open commander's hatch cast into the top.

If you click the image below, you will see the beautiful detailing of turret, right down to the surface texture that replicates the turret casting in full-scale.

You can purchase these and any of the TGMA line directly from their online store. In addition to kits and diorama sets, they also carry an interesting array of military surplus gear should you want to outfit a one-scale figure (such as yourself).

My sincere thanks to TGMA for this review sample!
