M4A3E8 Sherman a.k.a 'Easy Eight'
M4A3E8 was the 3rd last in the developement line of the famous Sherman tanks. It was equipped with a 76 mm general-purpose gun. The nickname 'Easy Eight' developed because of it's incredibly easy operating and driving.

The tank in the World Of Tanks videogame


awesome.

I started this build looking through the best models of these tanks, searching for inspiration. I found it, and the credits go to:

PhiMa' for the turret design,
Nathan Elkins for the base and the tracks (heavily modded)

Thanks!

Probably one of your best looking tanks, very nice. The wheels holding the treads look very good. Great job.

Very nice :) I went with the Jumbo in WoT because I wanted to be able to scrap with heavies. Plus the Jumbo also leads up to the Medium line also, so its a win win for me.

Quoting Matthew Sylvan While both the turret and chassis is spot on, the gun barrel is thick for me. I use those pieces for 120-160mm guns. If you are interested I could send you an appropriate gun model.
I realise that, and wouldn't you know, I'm already working on a smaller version of the tank so it's minifig scale. There, I'll include a much smaller gun. Thanks anyway :)
