THREE NEW KITS ANNOUNCED

We are very pleased to announce our next LIMITED EDITION Armortek kits which will be manufactured and shipped over the next 9 months:

  • First up will be the Sherman M4A3 HVSS (the “Easy Eight”) made all the more popular by the movie “Fury”, which will be shipping in Spring 2021.
  • This will be followed by most popular tank we have made, and perhaps the most well known from WWII, the late Tiger I. Shipping of the Tiger I will be around early to mid summer 2021.
  • And finally, we will make a kit we have never made before – the Hetzer (Jagdpanzer 38), the most prolific late WWII tank destroyer used by the Germans. The Hetzer will be shipping around mid to end summer 2021.

SHERMAN M4A3 (76) HVSS

SHIPPING SPRING 2021

Building on a successful, proven design, the Sherman M4A3 (76) HVSS featured improved mobility and performance with the Horizontal Volute Spring Suspension (HVSS). The suspension was a marked improvement over the previous vertical volute spring set up, which, combined with its prototype designation of E8, earned it the nickname of “Easy Eight”.
