Today I’d like to show you a M3A1 Stuart tank.
The vehicle from the period of fights in Stalingrad Front, late summer 1942, assigned to the 241st Tank Brigade, operating as a part of 24th Army RKKA.
Photo of the vehicle (unfortunately, I came across the photo after finishing the model – as you can see not everything that Academy has proposed is matching the actual vehicle):
Made straight out of the box, very pleasant and quite well-fitting model, with the full interior of the fighting compartment and a basket in a turret.
On the downside I would point rubber tracks and poor decals, requiring a really special treatment.
Dirt and shading made with MIG and AK Interactive washes, Tamiya crayons – Mud & Sand.
Best, stay tuned
