Just been to see the film Fury which I thought was excellent and to my eyes very authentic. Feel inspired to hunt this kit down as it seems to be the best example available ??
30. October 2014, 19:48
Fabian D.
It´s a verry nice kit, a good choice if you´re building an "Easy 8"... but no klue if it matches the one in Fury, as I still haven´t seen it yet....
30. October 2014, 21:02
John Van Kooten
Hi Martyn,

The M4A3E8 Asuka kit (formerly Tasca) is the best kit available of the "Easy 8". No question about it

It does have a two piece plastic barrel and rubber band tracks (both track sets divided in two parts, so four parts in total) but they are easy to build and clean. No reason to replace them with aftermarket products.

One question though: do you want to build a Sherman that looks exactly like the one in the movie? Because the Sherman used in the movie is actually the M4A2E8 Sherman "Harry" from the Bovington Tank Museum.

You could use the Asuka kit as a base. The tracks are the most obvious item that would need some attention. The tracks on the Fury movie Sherman are T84 tracks (which were not used in WWII), so you would need to replace the kit tracks, which are type T66.

Thanks for the info John. I'm not thinking of building the exact Sherman from the film although it will be interesting to see how soon a company brings out the decals/aftermarket parts to model it. I'm off to the big IPMS show at Telford next week so the Tasca kit might be on my shopping list.I do recommend you both checking the film out though.
31. October 2014, 21:26
John Van Kooten
The film is on my list for sure! :) I'm eager to go see it

I honestly don't know if there's much demand for AM sets from scale modelers to build movie armor? So yeah, it will be interesting to see if that happens :)

If you can get the, or for that matter, any, Tasca kit, I can assure you it will be well worth the investment :)

Good luck and hope you have a lot of fun at the IPMS show next week

Hi John,had an excellent weekend at Telford and managed to pick up the Tasca Sherman aswell as many other goodies. I've just posted some pictures of the show :)

Tamiya is also reboxing Asuka Shermans so that might be an option.
11. November 2014, 20:09
John Van Kooten
Glad to hear you had a good time, Martyn! :) and great that you were able to get your hands on the Tasca kit! I'll go check out the pics of the show, thanks!

@Julian: Aha! I actually didn't know Tamiya was reboxing Tasca/Asuka kits :) not that it is surprising of course, since the Tasca team were basically all ex-Tamiya employees :D

Ooops, I´m hooked... ;)
18. October 2014, 18:42
John Van Kooten
Hahaha! :D

I am in the same boat you are! ;) I started with one Sherman, just for the sake of doing something else for a little while (as in: other than WWII German) and now I am hooked as well :P Shermans are GREAT!
18. October 2014, 18:56
Fabian D.
Seems like I´m lees hooked than you: Tasca Shermans are great. (But I don´t like the ones with the "bubble" turret ;) ) :D
I think Tascas instructions are faboulous, I´ve never seen that ammount of info anywhere else. And they are not only telling you what you´re gluing together, dry-fit reminders and lot´s of painting and even scratiching advices. That is GREAT! :D
18. October 2014, 19:18
John Van Kooten
Yeah, Tasca kits are indeed awesome for the very reasons you mentioned

Even if you only like the T23 turret types for the 76mm Gun (like the one in this kit) then you still have quite a few Shermans kits to go ;) Hahaha! :D
18. October 2014, 19:29
Fabian D.
Yeah, indeed, but there is so much other stuff waiting to be build aswell... life is too short to build all of them ;)
