1:72 Scale Metal Diecast – M35A1 Quad Gun Truck - Length: 4", Width: 1.5”
This M35A1 model's body is made of metal while the turret is made of plastic. The turret can rotate all 360 degrees. The guns do not elevate. The coloring and markings are accurate and realistic.
The maker of the model ,Amercom, really did a good job with the model, the panel lines and details are very clear and crisp. These models have different details engraved such as doors, hatches, panels, lights, ports, antennas, machine guns, ropes, shovels, etc; all of these done with high accuracy and proportion. When they are painted in different color, say for example, shovels and ropes, they are indeed painted accurately.
These models come in s very basic packaging, consisting of a transparent blister pack. The model itself is attached (via screws) to a plastic base which is made to look as rough terrain. The base measures about 5 inches by 2.5 and at one side of the base is some info about the model such as the type of tank, the outfit it belongs and the time period it served.
These models are not toys, they will not last long if played with. The tracks don't move and the turrets and their main guns and machine guns can be quite fragile because of their size. Some of the tanks will have a turret that does not rotate at all. (so if you try to rotate the turret or change the elevation of the gun and feel some resistant, better leave it alone and don't risk breaking something).
The M35 2½-ton cargo truck is a long-lived 2½-ton 6x6 cargo truck initially used by the United States Army and subsequently utilized by many nations around the world. Over time it evolved into a family of specialized vehicles. It would not only inherit the World War II GMC CCKW's famous "Deuce and a Half" nickname but forge its own legacy.
