M4A3 (105) CombiKit

Manufacturer: AL.BY Miniatures (Kit #CK05)

Like all Al.By CombiKits, this kit contains a complete ESCI M4A1 Sherman kit, plus resin conversion parts to make this specific version: the M4A3 (105). The plastic parts can be seen in the preview for the ESCI M4A1 kit.

The resin parts shown below are the additional parts to this kit. The hull is an improved version of the ESCI M4A3 hull, with new ventilator covers, new fluid filler covers, new pioneer tools, etc. It is a superb piece, and is included with all of Al.By's Sherman CombiKits. Also included are the two hull hatches, which are copies from the ESCI M4A3 kit, the rear hull piece, and the new turret and gun. Notice the differences between this turret, and the Commander Series 105mm turret. This Al.By kit includes the early split hatch for the commander, whereas the Commander Series turret is equipped with the later-style cupola with periscopes and single hatch. While this Al.By kit represents the 105mm version of the M4A3, the Commander Series kit represents the 105mm version of the late model M4.
