Yah, it's built on the old Unimax Bravo Team version...the giveaway is the underside & the tracks, they're distinct from the BBI releases... Obviously it's not super-accurate, but it's pretty nifty nonetheless...and the price is a steal, can't say I'm not tempted... :) The guy selling it has a video...

Belated thanks for this link, PanzerArm...great to see a company producing a range of stuff beyond the obvious choices...but did they ever produce the 1/32 armor?...the scale line seems to have disappeared from their website...

Awesome find!

I'm glad for you, bro, and to reinforce your feelings of joy take a quick look at the usual bunch of listings of JSI & BBI at utterly absurd prices on ebay...you got it cheaper than some of the ones with missing and broken pieces...sometimes Christmas comes early! :)

" Due to the expensive tooling cost involved, [FOV] reluctantly have to price the Sherman series beginning from 119 USD " ...metal tracks (if priced the same as the Tiger) will set you back another $35...
