Reviewed by Graham Brown
Primarily designed to represent the fictional tank "Fury" from the film of same name, there is the choice of 2 alternative units and in general a pretty good model. Major plus points are a large supply of external boxes, blankets etc. which are regularly seen in photos of WW2 Shermans, and a choice of 2 excellent one piece flexible tracks. Minor criticisms would be a lack of clear plastic pieces for lights and vision blocks, also no crew figures or interior detail. The radio aerials are too thick & I would replace them with thin wire, and although white star decals are provided, many crews painted over them as they spoilt the camouflage.
