Zvezda 1/35 M-3 Scout Car
I believe I won this kit in a raffle as I haven’t tried to do many military vehicles, and this was one of my first attempts.. The M-3 was the product of the Wright Motor Car Company in Cleveland, Ohio, is sometimes referred as the White Scout Car. It was used for patrol, scouting, as a command vehicle, as seen in the movie Patton, ambulance and as a gun tractor. White built over 20,000 of these and they were also used by the British, Russia, and the Free French. It’s design would be the influence for the M-3 Half Track vehicle. Both would be replaced by the M-8 Greyhound.
Build was fairly straight forward and OOB, I did think there were way too many parts, especially for the under pinning which would not be seen. Used Model Master paints and some pastel chalks for some highlighting, along with the kit decals. The kit also came with a canvas top which I did not use as I wanted an open model.
