There is actually only one sprue's difference between this kit and the previously previewed M3 Lee. That is the turret sprue which is shown above. The Grant also seemed to use the full dirt shield fenders, something that most Lee tanks did without. Also the same is the small etched metal fret so I'll let you read that other preview rather repeat myself in that regard. Instructions are basically the same though there is only one main gun option provided.
Markings are provided for four different tanks. First is an overall Sand and is one of those used to train British tankers in the field. It was used during the June 1942 Ghazala battle. Next is another Sand colored Grant from an unidentified British unit. The third tank is from the Scots Greys from Sept 1942 and is in an OD and Sand color. The final scheme is the one shown on the box art from the 2nd Dragon Guard (Queens Bays) in an interesting disruptive scheme. Decals are well printed and judging from past performance, should work quite well with minimal hassles.
As with the previous Lee kit, there are lots of extra unit markings provided and a page in the instructions that explains what is what so you really do have a lot more than four options!
I can see how this will become a very popular model. The detailing is super and there are enough possibilities in terms of markings to make just about anyone happy.
