Our M4 Sherman add-on resin kit - The T34 Calliope Tank Mounted Multiple Rocket Launcher (MRL). The T34 comes with two choices - early and late production variants. It also comes with a hole drilling fixture for the turret as well.

If you looked at the T34 closely, you will find our resin design integrate seamlessly with our plastic kit. Quality & detail is our priority when it comes to our "Rubicon Models" name!











Enjoy!
;)

Nice.

So the barrel is an additional part on the early variant?

Correct, that's because the mounting ring is on the gun barrel, and getting the ring onto the existing plastic barrel will look awkward.

Oh nice.

Will the resin kits be following the same release schedules as the tank kits (Q1, Q2, Q3 and Q4)?

Would like to see some dozer blades too

Re: Codename: Sherman 2016 - Deep Wading Trunk Prototype 180218

Following the T34 Calliope MRL from yesterday is our resin deep wading trunk for all M4 variants. All trunks have interior details so that you can model them with -or- without the trunk itself! Enjoy!













Enjoy!

Will you be doing the canvas screen for the M4 (deployed/undeployed) as well?

DD Sherman needs modifications to the lower hull, so it’s not an easy a job as it sounds.

Plus they were on M4A1 and M4A4, neither of which are produced yet.

Would be so cool though.

Large hatch hull (no cut out on rear plate)?

Lots of complex curves.
