Very cool!! Thanks for sharing Martin

From what I gather it says that it is scheduled for fall 2006 and that it is currently in development. The photo of the tank is just a test shot and does include the PE and transparent parts. There will be approximately 400 parts in 14 sprues, PE parts and transparent parts for the periscopes and lights. There will be two types of muzzle brakes, additional armor, 1 figure, and decals for four vehicles

Looks interesting. What are those fittings on the front attached to the fenders? Never seen those before.

Like noted in the original post, these are Houseboat fittings. Sorry I didn't clear that up.
Houseboat was device, intended to make the tank look like a lorry. This was meant to fool aerial reconnaisance. It mirrored the Sunshield program, which was the name of a disguise methode which was employed in Africa.

There are quite a few photos of Houseboat fitted to Sherman, including the well known Firefly, Carole from 13/18th Hussars.

@Lawrence, thanks for the additional comments. Sherman fans are experiencing some great times now: Academy M4A3E8 105mm with dozer, DML M4A2 and M4A3E8 76, Tasca's Firefly ... I'd better start making room, and funds :lol:

Thanks for pointing out.

The set includes:
- Bosch lights with full cover and disassembled with Tiger I lamp base and power source plug
- Notek lights
- Rear convoy distance indicator lights (two types indicating how the flap was positioned)
- Tiger I smoke discharges both loaded and empty
- Food containers

Bad news is that the set is only currently available through the Tasca online store which is in Japanese. Price is 840 yen or about $7.30

This one looks cool! If quality is same as withj Lüchs, you get a high-grade model there
