This 1/72 scale kit represents a mid-WW2 diesel engined Sherman. Based on the square, welded driver’s hoods protruding from the 57 degree angled glacis plate this is a Sherman produced by Fisher Company. Fisher was the only Sherman manufacturer to produce and use this type of hood and it is commonly referred to as the “fabricated” hood. Other producers used cast-steel driver’s hoods until introduction of the 47-degree glacis. I have never seen applique armor plates fitted to the fabricated hoods as was common to the cast hoods.

This M4A2 variant (i.e. the one with the square hoods) was used by US Marines on Tarawa Island, by the Poles in Italy, by UK forces, and by the Soviets.
