On May 14, 1948, the technicians at the "Hagana" took over the equipment abandoned by the English troops, during their withdrawal. They found some Sherman M4-A2 tanks and put them to work. That was the beginning for the serving history of this Sherman tank in the Israeli Army. The Minicraft Academy kit is really good. It has a lot of details that makes it look very lifelike. In order to build this model, I used two publications as a reference; although they didn't clear up all my doubts about the subject, they were of great help. Besides, there's not much specific printed information about this vehicle.
