Sherman Sam--welcome. I believe you are speaking about the new Italeri USMC M-4 with wading trunks. I can direct you to the Hunnicut Sherman book and I am sure 19K will come up and provide you a site on the exterior and interios shots. Great model to build enjoy!

Sam, there is an M4 Modeling book out, one by MMiR (Ampersand Publishing) and the other by Concord. I don't recall which book it is in, since they are at home, but one has a scratch build of the wading trunks using cardstock paper. You can get a good idea of the detail here as the master modeler does a better job of accurizing the hull than the Italeri USMC M4.

Welcome aboard Sam! Your English is fine.

Ackkk, I almost feel obligated DJ. Wish I could help.

If you're interested in the Italeri build of the M4A2 I can provide you with a few links. As far as "actual" pics go, I have yet to find any out there.

19K---I just started the USMC M-4. I'd appreciate it if you find any links. I am putting the Eduard PE set on her. The Eduard instruction is some four pages long in color coded sections. So far it is well worth the cost which (oh, by the way) cost as much as the model! Anyway, she is going togther well.
thanks
