$ 14.99

1:72 Scale Metal Diecast – M548 Tracked Cargo Carrier -  Length: 3.25", Width: 1.5”

 

This M548 model's body is made of a combination of metal and plastic. The tracks are made of rubber and are fitted, however they do not move. The coloring and markings are accurate and realistic.

 

The maker of the model, Eaglemoss, 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 what could be described as a disposable blister pack. The packaging is very minimum, the blister back is just big enough to enclose the vehicle and the cardboard backing to which the blister is attached is barely bigger than the lengths and width dimension of the vehicle.

 

Although these models are inexpensive and just about the size of a (regular) computer mouse, they are certainly not toys. The tracks don't move and the turrets and their main guns and machine guns can be quite fragile because of their size.

The M548 is a tracked cargo carrier. It is based on the M113 armored personnel carrier, and was built byFMC Corp. in San Jose, California in the USA.
