Description

The M3 and M5 family of light tanks were the culmination of American tank development of the 1930s. However, by the time of the outbreak of World War II, they were approaching obsolescence. First entering combat in the autumn of 1941 in the Western Desert with the British Army, the Stuart quickly showed that it was inadequate in tank fighting. They proved more suitable in the Pacific theater than in Europe, and fought successfully in many of the major battles. This title shows three different ways of building these popular tanks, covering construction, painting and weathering, as well as illustrating the vehicles in diorama settings.
