If anyone wonders why I wrote M4E8 "Fury" and omitted an A2 or A3 that a Fury tank would normally have. The hull is a large hatch M4 variant.

Oh, I naturally presumed because of the HVSS that it was a modified Tamiya.
I do wish you had given us a little more in your description :/

The E8 designation indicates the HVSS, not the 76mm gun. The VVSS version supplied to the Soviets would have been designated M4A2 76(w).

I thought E8 was a Sherman A2/3 with the bigger gun and turret that just so happened to have HVSS :{ but my Sherman book agrees with you. Thank you for correcting me yet again Mr Tiger6 :thumbup:

Bugger. Why don't they call that Tamiya M4 105 an M4E8 >:<

I guess because I'm not bothered about modelling a Sherman with HVSS, I didn't pay enough attention at Sherman school :(

I shall edit that drivel I came out with in my original post, but you may keep my embarrassing moment in your quote.
