Product description

Recreate a piece of history with this Airfix British M3 Stuart Honey Model Kit!

The tank's ability to "shoot and scoot", as well as keeping the crew safe from small fire arms fire, earned an affectionate nickname of "Honey" by its operators. The M3 incorporated a thicker armour than its M2 predecessor, a lengthened hull, and a trailer idler wheel to act as another road wheel to decrease ground pressure and improve weight distribution.

The M3 turret had three pistol ports and shortened recoil mechanism. It was also equipped waith a 37mm M6 gun, which was adequate early in the war, but by 1942, the German counterparts far surpassed the range of the M3. The narrow width of the M3 could not accommodate a larger gun. The M3A1 was fitted with a Westinghouse gyrostabilizer, a turret basket and an oil gear hydrolic traverse mechanism, but lacked a turret cupola. The earlier version of the M3A1, the Stuart III, was powered by Continental W-970-9A-7 cylinder radial gas 250 hp engine but by mid 1941, the Stuart IVs came off the production lines with Guiberson T-1020 air cooled radial diesel engine.

This will be perfect for any model-maker's collection.

Airfix British M3 Stuart Honey Model Kit 1:35 is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality and detailed model. Airfix have upped the quality of their models. The detail and quality have greatly improved. The M3 tank is an early WW2 tank and small but has a nice design all wheels move not cemented, tracks are good and can be sealed using a flat head screwdriver and a candle to heat it up. Lots of extras provided which you can chose to add or not to the tank. I added a 50 cal machine gun on the turret to up its firepower which can be seen in the photo. Recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a find after many years. After 60 years of modelling in 1:72 scale, covering military vehicles, ships, planes and steam engines, I decided to have a go at 1:35 scale after coming across them in a Hobbycraft store. I am finding it a complete revelation. Love it.
