$ 19.99

The 1/32 scale model of the M3 Half Track measures about 7.5 inches in length with a width of about 2.5 inches and 2 inches high (from the ground to the top of the wind shield. They are not your typical building kit where one needs to cut pieces out of runners/trees, but instead they come as disassembled toys where one needs to attach the parts with screws (screws and screw driver are included). This is a plastic model. No metal parts are present (except of course, the little screws). 

The tracks are made of rubber and very nicely detailed. The assembly method allows for the tracks to be movable.

From the photos you can see that different tools, grills. spare wheels, hatches, etc are nicely molded and makes the model look quite realistic.

 No gluing or painting is needed. Markings and different color trims are present in some models and accurately done. These models look fine out of the box, however they can still be weathered/detailed to make them look even better.

Assembly was pretty straight forward on this model, it is just a matter of joining the turret to the upper half of the vehicle and then joining these to the bottom half of the vehicle.

 

The box measures 10 inches by 7 inches by 1.5 inches.

Derived from the M2 Half Track Car, the slightly longer M3 was extensively produced, with about 15,000 units and more than 50,000 derivative variants manufactured (most of which were interim designs).
