The first of the three Warlord Games Sherman V tanks has now reached the "as finished as it gets" stage.
The turret is rather crude, especially compared to the previous M4 kit.
The fixed gun position does seem a retrograde step and it appears to be projecting an appreciable distance forward (a similar problem plagues the Rubicon Panzer III). The commander's hatch is also very crude, the hatch parts leaving extremely noticeable gaps and appearing to be very thick. The mantlet is also a noticeably different shape to that of the M4 kit and the old Rubicon 75mm M4A3 kit.
Here are some comparison photographs with the Warlord Sherman I.
