Does Warlord actually produce an M4A3(w) as shown on the box here:

I suspect that the box does not reflect the contents – I think it is a reboxing of the original M4 Sherman kit.

Can anyone provide a categorical answer?

Thanks.

All the Warlord vehicles are Italeri reboxes as far as I understand.

Note the Italeri logo on the box.

I just called Warlord and the man with whom I spoke confirmed they have never produced a plastic M4A3 75 wet.

Glad I did not trust the box image!

Hi Chris,

The box you linked to is the original design using artwork we were kindly allowed to use by our finds at Osprey Publishing.

Once we released the error we swiftly had the artwork replaced by something more accurate:

The new design has been in circulation for at least a couple of years. It looks like A Fistful of Dice have yet to update the image on their webstore hence the confusion

That's not quite correct, I'm afraid.

It is true that many of our 1/56 scale plastic kits are indeed produced in conjunction with Italeri but they had no kits in this scale before our partnership began.

This is something we have done together – it's not simply us taking and reboxing Italeri kits.

I hope that makes the situation a bit clearer!
