1:72 Scale Plastic Model – M26 Pershing Main Battle Tank - US ARMY - Length: 4.75" (from back to tip of the gun) Width: 2”

 

This Pershing model is entirely made of plastic, this allows for more accurate shapes and details. The model is fully assembled and painted. There is nothing to do other than take it out from the box for display.  The tracks are made of plastic and are fitted, however they do not move. The coloring and markings are accurate and realistic.

 

The maker of the model, Easy Model, really did a good job with the model, the panel lines and details are very clear and crisp. These models have different details engraved such as doors, hatches, panels, lights, ports, antennas, machine guns, ropes, shovels, etc; all of these done with high accuracy and proportion. Moreover the paint scheme is done in a "weathered" style where one can see different shades of darker color along particular panel lines and edges to represent oil stains and/or normal wear 

 

These models come in a very attractive window box and are kept in place by a transparent plastic shell. The model is screwed onto the shell by two screws that need to be removed when taken out of the package for display.

 

These models are not really toys, they are very fragile and will not break if played with. They are made mainly for display purposes.

 

The box measures 8 inches long by 3 inches wide by 4 inches high.

 
The Pershing was a medium tank of the United States Army. The tank is named after General of the Armies John J. Pershing, who led the American Expeditionary Force in Europe in World War I. It was briefly used both in World War II and the Korean War.
