Gilmark Sherman M4 Tank - OD HP

Here's the second in our very short series of Gilmark hard plastic military vehicles made from 1951 to mid-'50s, the Sherman M4 Tank. Sherman M4 you say? Yup, it doesn't bear much resemblance to the real thing but then it is only a toy. Anywho, the words 'Sherman M4' are molded into the rear of the tank hull so I guess that's what Gilmark wanted us to believe. "U.S. ARMY with star" is heat stamped in white on the left side only and it measures 3 1/4" (8.25cm) L x 1 1/2" (3.81cm) W x 1 5/8" (4.12cm) H. As far as I know there were only four vehicles in this series: Armored Troop Carrier (which I had previously mis-identified as an Armored Car), Sherman M4 Tank, Howitzer Carrier, and Armored Car (which I don't yet have). We'll feature the Howitzer Carrier in the next day or so. Enjoy! Opa Fritz and Oma Bettina
