M18 Hellcat US Army Tank

This is a 1:35 M18 Hellcat US Army Gun Motor Carriage from Academy Plastics. It's for experienced modelers.

The M18 Hellcat is not really considered a tank, but is designated as a gun motor carriage. This means it is mobile artillery intended more for infantry support. The M18 was used primarily during WWII. It was quite fast for a tracked vehicle, with a top speed of 55mph. It was powered by a 9-cylinder radial engine producing 340 or 400hp. A total of 2,507 M18s were produced between July 1943 and March 1945.

"So much to say! Fantastic kit!"
brady.stephenson (Virginia)
Wow. WOW!!! This kit, man! Its so good. First of all, there is a full interior, which is totally cool. It is a detailed one, too. Second of all, there is a whole sprue for ad-ons like gas tanks, and gear and bags, etc. The whole kit is awesome, and is a fun build. I would recommend being a somewhat experienced modeler to get this, because there is some challenging parts to build (the turret interior)

"Best Model kit Ever!"
steve.badamo (Cleveland, Oh)
My absolute favorite tank in the best build kit ever! A lot of fun to build, very detailed and the parts fit great. Be patient, this is a very detailed build, but soooo worth it. I tried my hand at staining the finished tank for the first time and I think it looks great. A lot of extra accessories to add on and make it look authentic. Highly recommended!

"Amazing and fun kit."
Jacob Hillstead (California)
There is not a whole lot of kits of the M18 out there but that's okay because academy has this amazing kit to offer. I do know AFV club has one I never got my hands on one. This kit has lots of details on it every thing goes on smoothly I do recommend trying a couple low part count kit before this one. This kit has a option of choosing gun matlets. I highly recommend leaving the drivers hach open to actually see the inside. Paint as you go because it might be harder to paint after building it.

"Lots of Details!"
johncpo41 (www.hobbiesinabarn)
This kit yells out detail me!! And away I went with all out effort and detailing sets that I could find as well as mixed and matched figures that were placed close enough to make a realistic tight fit, I'd say you had to be a short guy to crew this cat! The machine guns, tripods, and ammo were all from the Academy U.S. Army Machine Set, another great set that I have many of and detailing every US Army model. I used the decals from various sets, finishing off the famous Kilroy as this was a favorite trick painting of the GIs. An outstanding kit that deserves detailing and lots of weathering as with all of my models.
