M5A1 late Stuart – updating Tamiya’s classic
This is Tamiya's ancient (1974?) 1/35 M5A1 Stuart updated to a late variant by removing the Cullen device, side skirts, adding a scratch built stowage bin on the rear, tow cables from fine solder, replacing all the molded in tie down loops with brass wire, drilling out the lights and making lenses, replacing the .30 cals with aftermarket and detailing the mounts, and replacing the inaccurate rubberband track with spare Academy track. Hope you like, Colin
