    Product Description
    This is a plastic model kit, which comes unassembled and unpainted. So glue, model paints and other basic modelling tools are additionally required.

    In the latter half of WWII, British troops ventured into battlefields populated with dangerous German foes such as the Tiger I and Panther, necessitating the development of their own powerful counterpart. It came in the form of the Sherman VC Firefly, which used the versatile U.S. tank M4 Sherman as a base for the big-hitting British 17-pounder gun. Even using conventional armour piercing rounds, the 17-pounder was capable of defeating the Tiger I's frontal armour at a range of 1 kilometre. In total over 2,000 Sherman's were converted into Fireflies, their deployment in the days and months after the Normandy landings helping the Allied push on the Western front. Indeed, in addition to British units, the Firefly was also dispatched to good effect to New Zealand, Canadian and Polish forces. The VC was but one variant of the Firefly, and it was based the complex multibank inline-6 engine gasoline engine M4A4 variant of the Sherman.
