Despite the gloom and Doom predictions mine turned up in the mail yesterday and I have to say it is impressive. I am not sure it as impressive as the RFM one but so close to it and definitely in hte same league as Asuka. Interesting how they have done the hull rear upper which to me indicates other variants to follow (M4 and M4A2?). The full Gun breech and metal barrel is nice but no other interior detailing and a big hole in the fighting/engine compartment firewall (Engine kit/ Interior to come?). Three options for Muzzle but only 2 in instructions Nice marking options for four tracks. Cool Studs, Thunderbolt VI and two interesting Whitewash schemes. markings appear complete unlike RFM. Not a fan of the instructions, please give larger print formats than A5. Very happy with this and do not believe it to be their sole entry into the Sherman Market. Well done Meng. Please note this is a five miniute appraisal on my work desk.

Sounds promising. With any luck I'll get mine sooner than later.

After following the link, some interesting comments to read. I will wait to comment on the details until I can hold the parts. I thought the pictures were slightly out of focus, but that could just be my lousy eyes.
