I bought the Academy 1/72 kit of the M3A1 Half Track today. I can't get at
most of my AFV references at the moment so can't check this myself so I
thought I'd ask the experts here. Should the M3A1 really have the folding
luggage racks on the outside of the rear hull plates as shown in the kit? I
know that these were fitted to the M3A2 but can't find any evidence of their
being fitted to the M3A1.
In addition, do the 30cal MGs in the kit seem a little undersized?
I nearly bought the Academy GMC CCKW 353 truck but decided against it when I
had a look at the cab. Instead of the characteristic hinged V windscreen,
the kit has a rectangular windscreen opening that looks wrong and would be
very difficult to rectify. Has anyone dealt with this?
Best wishes for the New Year.
