The Sherman tank saw widespread Allied use in WWII, but its original 75mm gun was woefully inadequate for taking on heavily armored German tanks like the Panther and Tiger. With remarkable foresight the British had decided to fit a 17pdr anti-tank gun, able to penetrate a Tiger I’s frontal armor at 1,000m, to the Sherman. Thus the British Firefly was born, with approximately 2,200 eventually produced. Most Fireflies were adapted from the M4A4 and were known as the Firefly VC (‘C’ denoting the 17pdr gun), while a smaller number were converted from the older M4 type and were called the Firefly IC.

Dragon is proud to announce its first-ever Sherman Mk.IC Firefly plastic kit in enormous 1/6 scale, and it perfectly complements a couple of other Sherman variants produced in this size. Brand new for this Firefly is the upper hull, the cast one-piece differential housing unique to the Hybrid type, the mantlet and the 17pdr gun barrel. The characteristic stowage box (which housed the radio equipment displaced by fitting the larger gun) is also present on the rear of the turret. The 1/6 scale is ideal for including every little detail, while the cast texture of the hull and turret are accurately depicted too. This model kit perfectly captures the characteristic look of this Sherman variant. Indeed, this Firefly IC is more than ready to take on its German counterparts in any duel!
