Small hatch w/cast in hull applique armor. It looks like it has a high bustle turret with loader's hatch as well.

getting the hang of this

so i thought the small hatch/cast applique was very rare and that most of them where converted to DD?
does anyone make a kit of the small hatch/cast applique m4a1?

also should it be called applique if it was not really "applied"

Thanks Roy!

Formations used to make a resin conversion, but this is not currently listed at the site.

though it does not list for what plastic kit it's intended.
So you might need to tinker and tweak a little bit when fitting it together.

This looks to be the Tasca hull with three plates glued on and blended in. If you already have an M4A1 kit, you could easily do it yourself. There are dimensions on Tim Streeter's site (I think) or you could put them in the same locations as the M4A1 applique in my MilMod article from a few years back.

But... The Panzer Art kit is designed for the Tasca kit.

Judicious sanding and some Aves epoxy putty will save you some dough... Though...

But it doesn't look like he has it.

Here's mine:





The right front one was 32 inches wide, the others 31 inches.
