Yes, a real big let down.

I will wait for the Mato metal chassis with the proper operating VVSS.  Erik even hyped the solid handles as an improvement in the video.  Really??? I think the hatch is metal.   This means a guy would have to grind them off to install a scale handle.

I think the forum crowds are a little too mature  in this hobby for this kind of thing.

sorry i will edit this and say it's more than likely it will cost as much

Yea, I'm a bit underwhelmed. 

A Sherman... *cue Price is Right losing horn*

What makes this any different from the 105mm turret on the HL? The barrel length?

Too be fair they have a 75mm bbl and the proper mantlet, but Ya the rest of the thing is HL.

I don't HATE it. The only Sherman I have is a Mato... 

Is it so bad to ask for a M4A3(76)? Wink

...something that had what approaches adequate anti-tank ability.. Very Happy

I agree it a nice looking tank, but it was a disappointment with the built up hype, could of been handed better.

Dean and I were thinking that the Taigen Sherman looks very much like the FOV static metal Sherman......... Same paint job, turret texture looks similar and the lower hull if gutted would look very much like the Taigen lower. The only difference is that the upper hull is plastic whereas the FOV is all metal.
