HL M4A3E8

Post by Xiaoshan_Sailor »

HL is about to release what appears to be an M4A3E8. Debuts this weekend at HEC in Beijing.

Sure wish they'd dial it back & offer an earlier cast hull Sherman.

I am grateful for the update, Xiaoshan_Sailor. 您会去北京的 HEC 吗?
At least an "Easy Eight" will be available RTR for the likes of addicts like me. I certainly like the newer HengLong control, especially the low speed, but I wonder about the sound.

I agree I'd actually be interested in a Sherman for once. Sorry but the 105 doesn't do it for me and to build from it with the correct suspension is cost prohibitive to say the least. Hooben is over priced junk. And the available kits are twice as much as the donor Shermy.

2nd image looks like a small hatch welded hull? Have they finally gotten around to doing the stuff they claimed they were doing 10 years ago or so?
