Based on the M3 half track, this IDF counterpart has many new tooled parts and photo-etched parts to depict the characteristics. Included are bonus backpacks hung on the hull side.
This 1/35 scale kit inherits the excellent foundation features of Dragon’s model of a WWII American M3 halftrack. However, it has been suitably modified to represent an Israeli M3 in the period of the Six-Day War. For example, there is a new machine gun mount above the front windscreen armor. A typical characteristic of Israeli halftracks was the mass of backpacks and kit stowed on and dangling off the sides of vehicles. This flurry of equipment is perfectly captured with a range of kit accessories made from DS, the ideal material to make such items from. This is a highly detailed and realistic model of an M3 halftrack fighting during the bitterly contested Six-Day War. Indeed, because such halftracks were used long before and after the 1967 conflict, this kit offers enormous modeling versatility too. It will definitely benefit any collection and will whet modelers appetites for even more Israeli subjects from Dragon’s Six-Day War collection!
