Will the PaK 36 have the Russian style spoke wheels and Soviet crew option?

The M4A2 looks a bit weird.  It seems to be a cross between a British and US Army vehicle.  Is this your usual artist?

Same guy.  I think it was the render angle looking up... sort of loving this scene though.  Is different from others.

Yay on the Sherman III, though the decoration is a bit non descript.

Strange cast numbers on the transmission cover.

So now the question is when are they going to be available?

It's a young boy telling the commander the way, right?  Nice concept, but the perspective is off, and the details on the tank are vague.  Neither this nor the M4A2 (76mm) artwork seem up to standard.

Great stuff - I'm in for the French, and need at least a couple of 15 CWT trucks  :)

The upcoming October release includes our first M3/M3A1 Halftrack Expansion kit - M21 MMC & M3/M3A1 Tarpaulin Set. Besides a highly detailed M21 interior, the kit includes FIVE plastic figures with two onboard and the other three formed a standalone dismounted 81mm Mortar Team.





Enjoy!

I'll be getting two of these. One for the M21 and one for the stand alone which will start the basis of a new US army for me.

Yes, that's very nice indeed.  Great paintjob too.  Please remember though that those additions to the upper hull were the rear sections of the sand shields, and were neither standard Sherman III fittings nor particularly common.
