Product Review: Battlefronts New Plastic British Shermans/Firefly boxset

I had another opportunity to pick up some more of Battlefronts new awesome plastic range this time it's the British Sherman Armoured Platoon. Like most other medium tank boxes it contains enough parts to build 5 Sherman V's or 5 Sherman Firefly VC tanks.

The box itself is about double the thickness of a regular box but that's not really an issue unless you're pressed for space. It has a colour coded semi-assembly guide on the back and comes with a British decal sheet that appears to look like it's for a guards division but it lacks magnets (XX105 Rare Earth Magnets - 1mm x 5mm $7 for 40 magnets) but that's not an issue for me.

Now lets take a look at what you get in the box 

So there's your full plastic Shermans which are very crisp and one part tracks the sprue is laid out very well and I had no missing parts and 2 left tracks are impossible another win here.

 Now these guys will go great with the plastic paratroopers from Open Fire or the new plastic Brits which are not out yet but they too look awesome.
Thanks for reading!
