US M3 Half Track Stowage

Review by Terry Ashley

This stowage set from Blast Models is designed for Tamiya U.S. Half Track kits and consists of seven 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 for easy cleanup.

The detail on the castings is very realistic with well defined details on the folds, bedrolls, tarps with crisp details and the large central casting being hollowed out to reduce weight.

Three of the castings are groups of packs and ammo boxes designed to fit in the hull side racks and you will have to fit these before attaching the racks. two others are for the front fenders as seen in many photos while there are two large stowage boxes for the rear luggage racks. These are cast hollow with packs on top and some dents and damage on the boxes for a bit of animation.

A simple but nicely detailed set to add life to your Half track with the minor cleanup making things easy.

Highly recommended.
