Dragon - 1/6 Sherman M4A3(75)W Tank
The M4 Sherman is the most famous American tank of WWII, and more than 50,000 examples of the medium tank were produced. It formed the backbone for innumerable American, British and Commonwealth armored formations. The popular Sherman was thus the logical choice when Dragon's design team were seeking a 1/6 scale armored vehicle for their next project. Last year Dragon produced a large-scale Panzer II. That model was big enough, but the new 1/6 Sherman eclipses it even further! The specific variant portrayed is an M4A3 75(W). It mounted a 75mm M3 medium-velocity gun in its turret. The M4A3 was the preferred variant for the US Army, meaning it was widely used in WWII. This 1/6 scale Sherman thus offers great potential for markings and combat theaters.
This Sherman is a big release for Dragon Action Figure Series in more ways than one. It's big on accurate details, as permitted by the large scale. The road wheels rotate, and the track is well designed and well engineered to be durable and realistic. Owners can traverse the turret and elevate and depress the gun towards any target they select. The fully built-up tank is equipped with a complete set of on-vehicle tools, and the craftsmen who assembled and painted this tank have done a fine job on the weathering. This M4A3 offers more than parity for those collectors seeking an Allied tank to go up against the German Panzer II. Collectors may also choose to add some appropriate 1/6 Dragon figures to create an impressive scene. With this Sherman, the Allies have just gained armored superiority!
