Alan,

A nifty (but pricey) accessory! I assume they only work for the early "small hatch" Shermans, as the later hatches were set at an angle...

Any idea if the front windscreen portion could fit a TD (M10, M36?) with a modified canvas hood?

I agree with both of your comments Alan and Tom. Nifty, but not a got to have. If I really get into Shermans, then I may pic up a set as it would be a nice way to add some personality to a build.

Hi Guys,

I have received the following update on the hoods from Resicast, so have amend the review to reflect this change:

"There has been a modification in the way the bad weather driver hoods have been cast and presented. They now include two folded hoods, that means 2 x 3 different hoods."

On the real thing they made them for both hatches. I think it;s a good detail to have available.
