The model features turnable turret, raisable gun barrel, openable hatches - commander's (in the turret) and also driver's and gunner's (in the hull).
The commander and the MG gunner can be placed in the turret, as the other three people in the hull - the driver, the second MG gunner and the loader.
In the rear part of the hull the engine compartment is placed. It features openable top cover and inspection doors.
Inside there is a mini model of an interesting 30-cylinder engine Chrysler A57,
which was made as a combination of five 6-cylinder car engines.
This is by far the best all round lego sherman in the world, not just MOC pages. a few bits have been done better but the overwhelming number of pefect designs the fit in such a compact package give this a score higher than MOC can allow, 11 out of 10 any day!
This is good, however I would have to disagree with whoever says this is one of the best. This is THE BEST! The one detail missing is that the egnine was a Wright R975 air-cooled radial, and later a Ford GAA V-8. *A little bit of history is next, anyone who doesnt care or who's time is limmited should stop reading.* The original engine was actualy an aircraft engine. Quite an audacious choice but when you think about it aeroplane engines are lighter, and have higher power/weight ratios. Also heavy radiators were eliminated, and in North Afrika the eliminated need for radiator water proved to be a large bonus. The choice did exact its price in the silhoutte of the tanks as the crankshaft was in the middle of the engine and the drive shaft passed under the turret. Eventualy the demand for aircraft engines lead to a new choice in engine, the Ford GAA V-8. Unfortunately the molds had already been cast for a medium tank and the new Shermans could not reduce thier silhouette. =)
