Oxford Diecast 1:76 Military 76SM002
Sherman III Diecast Model
British Army Royal Scots Greys, 1942

1:76 Scale   Length   Width
Sherman III   3"   1.5"

Only the second release on our new 1:76 scale American Sherman Tank Mk III, we see it here as deployed in Italy in 1943 with one of the most famous British regiments, the Royal Scots Greys. Up to that point in World War 2, the regiment had been in North Africa fighting Rommel's Panzer units but in January 1943, they withdrew and were re-equipped as an all-Sherman tank regiment to participate in the Italian Campaign. Our 1:76 scale Sherman tank represents their deployment in this role.

Decorated in the sand and grey black camouflage scheme, our model features matt white underside gun barrels and black caterpillar tracks and for this release also features a rear turret box. The history of the Royal Scots Greys goes back to 1678 with their roots firmly in Scotland and a tiny detail sees their brigade badge of a purple and green Scottish thistle printed on the front wheel arch. Note too, the RAF roundel with yellow surround printed on the upper surface of the tank, so as to be seen from the air.

Sherman III

The pilot model of the M4 was completed in September 1941, and the Sherman became the most widely produced tank of the war. The M4 Sherman defeated heavier tanks with superior numbers, and by using outflanking tactics to strike thinner enemy flank armor. Shermans also achieved success with progressively upgunned models and by working with tank destroyers. The Sherman tank--named by the British--was fast, maneuverable, mechanically reliable, easy to manufacture, and effective in its infantry support role. It served with the US Army and Marines during World War II, and the US transferred large numbers to the United Kingdom and allied forces of many countries.
