Our upcoming M3/M3A1 Expansion Kit will include an M21 MMC upgrade with two tarpaulins for the M3 and M3A1 half-track... plus an extra bonus - a standalone 81mm Mortar Team!





Enjoy!
;)

The M21 looks pretty good.  A higher angle would have been better, since the interesting stuff is all inside.

Why is the M4A2(76mm) in US Army markings?  It wasn't used by the US Army at all (or the US Marines - they only used the 75mm version).  Virtually the entire M4A2(76mm) production went to the Red Army.  We discussed all this earlier.

Do you get one of your new bases with the mortar crew?

Unfortunately no, not with this batch of releases.

Yes, we are aware of it.  Awaiting artist to give us a new render.  In the meantime, we are using this for headers only.

So presumably it will come with Red Army markings?

The figures for the M21 look good.

Only tank numbers without the red star!

We also need some Soviet issue logs and shrubbery for the kit to be totally accurate  :D

Not this time, just turret number.

No extra stowage as this will be a SIX sprue kit... no more space for the extras!

Good 3d model figures are very difficult to come by, even if you are willing to pay money for them  :(
