Hey guys,

another one for the Half Track Group Build.

Ever since I saw the pictures of the M3 with Wurframen in one of the Panzerwreck books, I knew I had to do one.
It took me some work to backdate the Academy M3A1 to an M3 and to add the rockets, but here it is.

Cheers
Rob

What was your inspiration to do this? That is awesome! I might even want to try and kitbash something like that. Time to go do some research....

I love it man, keep this coming!

That's a really interesting combination Rob, and your efforts have really paid off. Looks great! I really like the addition of the tarp. It really adds to the overall impression.

Thanks for posting it for us to admire.

Cheers,

Wayne

Certainly different!

Nice work.

Not being familiar with M3 halftracks what needs to be done to backdate to an M3?
