First Look Review
by: Jim Starkweather [ ]
Tasca has released another variant in their (now) long line of Sherman tanks. This time around it's the IC (1C) Firefly with composite hull. Composite hulls were made from a 'cast' front hull section mated to a welded rear hull section. This kit includes parts from other Tasca releases of the Sherman. There are two F sprues included in the box which have both a British tank commander and a second U.S. tank crewman (which was from a prior release).
The kit looks to be another solid release from Tasca in Japan. Expect the price for this kit to be in the $60 range. The kit is in pre-order status with many online shops right now.
As this is primarily a photo preview you can see for yourself what is included with the kit. We have also posted a video (at right) showing the kit being unboxed.
Stay tuned for a more complete in-box/build review.
