Blitz, Thanks for the link and the pics. Maybe it's just me or the angle of the pics, but the main gun looks alittle outta proportion compared to the rest of the tank. Am I seeing it wrong?

Great news for the Sherman and thanks Blitz. The Sherman came with 3 barrels long 76mm, short 75mm and 105mm howitzer. The pic. looks like a M4A1 76mm. I'll wait and see for more pics. and details of the Sherman. When I get mine it will transformed into an M4A3E2 Assault tank. Norm66 your right the picture looks out of proportion the hull, turret and the gun.

If it is Heng long it will, but still not sure who is manufacturing this Heng Long or Matorro? But you can always convert it, to heng long and to the DBC/DBU Tamiya copmatible IR system!

So is this thing going to be $$$$$$ at first to get all the hyped up people or will it be reasonable like the panzer's. Think I may wait until next X-mus to let the pricing settle down a bite.. But if your under 2 bills for all metal I may go for it....

Looks pretty cool. I like the soft body Sherman. It's about time we get a 1/16th Sherman so let's hope they price it right. With the US/World economy in trouble less of us will be inclined to waste big $$ on a toy.
