British Sherman VC "Firefly" Model by Asuka 

The “Firefly” was a British modification to the M4 Sherman where the standard 76mm gun was replaced by the British 17pdr gun.  The 17pdr was a proven anti-tank gun which gave Sherman’s fitted with it the ability to destroy German Tiger tanks.  Due to the guns size & the relatively small turret the radios were relocated to an armoured box at the rear of the turret & the crew was reduced from 5 to 4 to accommodate the larger ammunition.

Asuka, formally known as Tasca are acknowledged as making the best plastic Sherman model kits in 1/35 scale & this kit is no different.  The level of detail of this model is second to none allowing you to build an accurate model of the Sherman VC Firefly tank.  As well as a small photo etch fret it gives you 4 marking options from tanks used after the D day landings.

The Tank Museum is happy to have worked direct with Asuka to stock this & other model kits in their range.
