1/35 Tamiya M3 Grant

Gallery Article by David Hawkins on Mar 16 2012

 

Hello fellow modelers!  This is the venerable M3 Grant from Tamiya.  It was a pleasure to build.  Fit was good and accuracy is OK.  I detailed the idler arms and their attachments with bits of sprue and sheet styrene.  I also added handles from copper wire and replaced the engine grill with wire screen.

The boxes, gas cans, MG tripod, and other stowage are from the Academy vehicle accessory set. Paints are all Model Master and were hand brushed.  Weathering was with Tamiya weathering master sets and tempura paints. 

I really enjoyed this build and I hope it gives you some inspiration to go build something! Thank you...
