Thanks Baron. The M3 is now on it tracks, and The tank is now 95% complete.

 

 

 

 

The DML 30.cal and tripod were painted and weathered. For the 30.cal ammo boxes the kit supplies you with a plastic rod to be used on the box hinges. These rods are very flimsy and a sewing pin was used in its place.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The copula's interior was painted and the copula gun was added.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Most of the tanks details and components have been painted and added. These would include the Antenna, head/ tail light lenses, 30.cal MGs, Air filters, painting the fire extinguisher handles and the grease fittings red.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

All that remains now are the fuel caps, and the tank's tools. The tank will then be complete  Big Smile !

The tank is now finished. I will now be creating the tank's gallery webpage. Once the webpage is complete, and the shop gets a good cleaning I will then start on my next project(s) ;).  

 

 

I have added the last of the parts to the tank including the pioneer tools, and the fuel caps.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I have also added the last of the M3 parts to the product line.http://www.eastcoastarmory.com/ustankparts.htm

 

I have added the large suspension spanner wrench to the US AFV tool set.

 

 

The last parts that have been added are the resin Rivet heads. The heads come in two diameters the smaller 5/32nd which are used on the top deck, and the rear plate

 

 

 

and the larger 11/54th which are used for the tank's sides plates.

 

 

I took advantage of the good weather and I was able to get some pics of the M3 out doors.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I also made a rendition of a propaganda image that was taken in Fort Knox in 1940

The tank's gallery webpage is complete. The webpage contains all of the construction and diorama pictures that were taken during the build.
