For anyone modelling the M4a3 complete with its ''Iwo Jima'' modifications, one of the nightmares has been to convincingly reproduce the Turret ''cages'' which were one of the many modifications seen there. Now, help is at hand from {b]Hard Corps Models[/b], who have announced a set of VERY convincing ''cages'' in 1/35th scale.... The full story can be seen here:

My-oh-My, life just gets better and better for us modelers now, doesn't it?
Thanks for the story, Jim!

They do indeed - i'm also damned sure that the next 'breakthrough' will be the cupolas/hatches with the 6" nails welded onto them. Personally I don't doubt for a moment they'll try it...

This HardCorpsmodels company is doing some marvelous stuff. There Amtrac tracks look outstanding, although with that price you could buy about 4 Amtracs alone... :-)
