New Release: Easy Eight – M4A3E8 Sherman Tank

Easy Eight - M4A3E8 Sherman Tank

About the Easy Eight – M4A3E8 Sherman Tank:

The name “Easy Eight” was the nickname for the final World War II production model of the famous Sherman tank. While never designed to battle heavy German armor, this model was more capable than the original Sherman tanks rolled out three years earlier. The Easy Eight contained key critical upgrades including a longer, high velocity 76mm gun and better armor. The nickname “Easy Eight” comes from the final two letters in its military designation, M4A3E8, which indicated an improved and heavier suspension system designed to deal with the extra weight of the new gun. This was effective at navigating the uneven terrain of the Ardennes Forest when in combat with intimidating German heavy tanks during the Battle of the Bulge.

The Easy Eight was the only Sherman to remain in American service following World War II, deployed in Korea until the development of the M46 Patton. The Easy Eight was also the basis of the famous Israeli “Super Shermans” which saw action well into the 1970s.

Specifications:

  • Crew: 5
  • Engine: Ford GAA 8-cylinder gasoline
  • Speed: 23 mph (37 km/h)
  • Range: 109 mi (175 km)
  • Armament: 76mm high-velocity gun, .50 caliber Browning M2, 2x .30-06 caliber machine guns

Features of the Easy Eight – M4A3E8 Sherman kit include:

The Brickmania team has updated our ever-popular Easy Eight kit with several new features. Significant upgrades include the addition of new custom weapons from BrickArms: new extra-long Easy Eight Gun Barrel, Easy Eight Muzzle Brake, and a Short .30 Caliber Machine Gun Barrel with Ball Joint. This model retains its smooth-running tracks, functional suspension, rotating turret, and four opening crew hatches. It also comes with the iconic BrickArms M2HB machine gun as standard equipment. A perfect addition to this kit would be one or more WW2 US Tanker minifigures (sold separately). For those looking to add an extreme flair to your Easy Eight model, we have also created the M4A3E8 Hollywood Add-On Pack.

A legend of World War II, the F4U Corsair saw significant combat in the Pacific Theater after 1943.

Its bomber capabilities helped support major operations at the Marshall Islands, Okinawa, and Iwo Jima by performing dive-bomb strikes against fortified Japanese positions. The story is that the Japanese referred to the warplane as “Whistling Death” for the noise it made as it dove for an attack run.

  • Armament: 6x .50 caliber M2 Browning machine guns

Features of this Brickmania™ Kit:

The Brickmania F4U Corsair has been updated with several new features, including a new bubble canopy, printed exhaust ports, dive flaps, and an all-around stronger design. It also features a brick-built, three-tone camouflage, a high-quality sticker sheet with “Stars and Bars”, and an American pilot minifigure. The Corsair kit also includes conversion instructions to display your warplane with its wings folded up as if it were stowed on an aircraft carrier.
