The Sherman tank was probably the most famous American tank in the World War Two. There are, therefore, numerous model kits at different scales from 1/72 to 1/35 which reproduce the large number of variants and camouflages of Sherman Tanks during the war. The Sherman tank cannot be absent in any diorama that depicts the battles occurred between American forces and German army. Here, we have collected most of the models available for the Sherman Tank at 1/72 scale. There are surely many more but it gives an idea of the current available and existing models purchased for model builders.

The Sherman is one of the most famous tanks of World War II, and was also the standard tank of the allied armies. The M4 was fairly well protected with armor but not sufficient enough to confront the 88mm guns of the Germans. It had a valid engine, was reliable and had sufficient range as well as armament.

The M4 Sherman was the primary tank produced by the United states. It was used by both the US and for the Allies during WWII. It gained its name via the United Kingdom after Union General William Tecumseh Sherman. The M4 remained in use by the US until the end of the Korean War and until the late 20th century by other nations.

The M4 Sherman, officially the Medium Tank, M4, was the primary battle tank used by the United States and the other Western Allies in World War II, and proved to be a reliable and highly mobile workhorse, despite being outmatched by heavier German tanks late in the war. Thousands were distributed to the Allies, including the British Commonwealth and the Soviet Union, in the lend-lease program. The M4 was the second most produced tank of the World War II era, after the Soviet T-34, and its role in its parent nation’s victory was comparable to that of the T-34. The tank took its name from the American Civil War General William Tecumseh Sherman.
