M3 Half Track Stowage
1/35 #BL35061K

Review by Terry Ashley

TamiyaAnother set designed for the Tamiya M3A2 Half Track (Kit #35070) is this set of stowage and personal equipment which consists of ten pieces in light cream resin with the quality of the casting being excellent without any blemishes and only very small pour points and minor seam lines to trim off the parts with this pouring method making life a lot easier than the usual large pouring blocks.

The detail on the castings is very realistic with well defined details and folds on the bedrolls, tarps etc and crisp details on the ammo boxes and other equipment included.

The two large castings for the rear stowage racks probable won’t be used as these racks were designed for the M3A2 non-production version of the Half Track but all the others items fit the contours of the vehicle sides, front fenders and interior fittings very well and while similar to the stowage in the Tamiya kit, these parts have considerable better defined and more realistic details.

A simple set to add life to your M3 half track kit where you can use all or some of the items as you see fit.

Highly recommended.
