The M4 Sherman was the basic American medium tank from World War II. Produced between 1942 and 1945, it became the most recognizable Allied tank! During the war it was constantly upgraded. It was equipped with a 75mm gun. Insufficient armament and a flammable engine made the Shermans initially an easy target for heavier German tanks. It was only after refining the design that the roles were reversed. A total of approximately 49,000 units of all Sherman versions were produced. The tank was used by, among others, the armies of the USA, Great Britain, Poland, France and the USSR. It enjoyed a reputation as a reliable, easy-to-manufacture and well-armed tank.
The mini-model made of COBI construction blocks was designed in a scale of 1:72 and consists of 103 high-quality elements. When built the tank is 9cm long. Despite its compact size, the model retains all the most important features of its historical inspiration! There are American markings printed on the sides of the vehicle. The tank can be moved thanks to the rolling wheels. The tank's turret is also movable and can be rotated.
The model is a perfect start to your adventure with COBI construction blocks. The M4A3 Sherman is also an interesting model and gift for collectors. It takes up little space and can easily find its place on a desk at home, at work or on a bookshelf.
