    Does anyone make an M4 with appliqué armour c1944-45, in 1/100?

    PSC, Forged in Battle and Battlefront don’t as far as I know?

    I have PSC M4A1’s but would like some M4’s to go alongside them for Operation Cobra.

    The Peter Pig ones are great but they don’t match size wise with the PSC plastic tanks.

    “Does anyone make an M4 with appliqué armour c1944-45, in 1/100?”

    Whilst I can’t help you there, your post has made me think about this.  When it comes to all things WWII German I am completely anal, so I can appreciate your question.  But to me a Sherman is a Sherman is a … you get the picture.  Oh, I’m excluding the obvious things like Fireflies, 76mms, Jumbos etc.  I’ll happily put anything on the table that even remotely resembles a Sherman 75.  Now why would that be?

    Can’t you just make some plates out of thin card and stick them on?

    I do mix PSC, QRF and PP Shermans on the tabletop….

    The armour isn’t a problem, it’s the welded hull and engine deck.

    I thought about using the PSC M4A2 and covering the engine deck with stowage but that’s not a great solution.

    I’ll check out QRF. Some of their older stuff  is a bit wonky but the new models are pretty good.

    How do the Old Glory Command Decision range match with PSC? They have M4’s that look good if a bit pricey compared to plastic.

    Haven’t got anything to compare but the Skytrex models (same masters, produced in the UK rather than the US, the production moulds are better looked after at a guess) tend to be better than the identical OG models at a similar cost. https://www.skytrex.com/4-command-decision-15mm-wwii Depending upon where you’re ordering from that may be a factor. They have both M4 and M4A1 with applique.

    Although this doesn’t include the PSC version dimensions are listed which could help

    My general experience with Skytrex/OG is that they are a tad smaller than more modern 15mm vehicles (many are 1/106th, the original 15mm scale, same as QC). QRF and PP are a good match for Shermans, PSC are a shade smaller and more delicate. Depends how much such size differences bother you.
