M3A2 Lee in 1/72 scale


Kit producer : Hasegawa

Model has arisen by a little conversion of classical M3 Lee model, especially by way of exchange of 75mm gun-barrel on behalf of longer one. Machine in colouring of 13th Armoured Division in Tunisia from January 1943 carries a rough camouflage,made in reality by irregular spots of soft sand, mixed with adhesive, over primary Olive Drab. On all photos is clearly seen how rough camouflage it was. On model, coloured by Humbrol 155, I've imitate it by rather thick sand colour on bigger paintbrush. Smoke pollution from guns and exhausts is imitated by ladies' eyebrow pencil.
