Tamiya's Sherman kit is a classic. First issued in 1974 it was overhauled in 2000 to make the Full Option kit, and again in 2010 to make the "Super Sherman M51". The rivet counters immediately went bonkers as the Super Sherman name was for the original Cast Hull 76 mm shermans the IDF received from France. Both VVSS and HVSS models were used and later updated to M50/ M51s. Tamiya's kit lacked many details and didn't change the hull very much. I made an accurate M51 with a mato hull a few years back but recently I decided to make a true SuperSherman... I dug deep into my parts box to make this tanks from several decomissioned projects... Here we go. I happended to have a 1/35 scale version as inspiration.
