Tamiya has upgraded its veteran 1/16-scale M4 Sherman with HVSS suspension and 105mm Howitzer radio controlled kit to this IDF M51 "Super Sherman" welded hull version with the addition of all-newly-tooled turret and long-barrelled 105mm gun parts with the distinctive muzzle brake, plus other parts to represent an IDF Sherman! All plastic parts moulded in a desert yellow colour. This is a "full operation" RC set, complete with 4-channel controller, and features proportional steering and drive, turret traverse, gun elevation and depression, and other actions. Nice to see Tamiya doing what the IDF did; take an normal M4 Sherman and turn it into a mighty "Super Sherman!"
All parts according to Tamiya Guide books, Tamiya manuals and Tamiya parts listings.
