Features :

This is a model of the famed M10 Tank Destroyer, a subject also covered in the 1/48 scale Military Miniature series. This largely newly-tooled model (only machine gun and clear parts are taken over from existing models) gives it the glorious detail of the larger 1/35 scale. The astonishing success of German armor tactics in 1940 prompted U.S. forces to adopt a doctrine requiring dedicated new tank destroyers to counter them. After going down a few different design routes at the start of the process, they eventually hit upon the highly successful M10 design with well-sloped (if rather thin, to keep the vehicle light and maneuverable) armor plate, and the highly capable 3-inch (76.2mm) gun. Over 4,900 were produced, and took part in Operation Torch (the invasion of N. Africa), as well as fighting in Italy and the advance upon Germany that would bring the exhausting conflict to a close.

"A Historic Build"
jimwoodward1943 (Broken Arrow, OK)
A tip for the builder Step 2 - do not attach until step 15. The rear axles are narrow and therefore weak. At this point I used Titebond II premium wood glue on the rear axles and then allowed 24 hours to set up. Otherwise this is a straight forward build - good luck!

This kit faithfully reproduces a mid production M10 with great detail.The crew figures are well animated and easily fit into the vehicle.

 
"Great kit"
Clint Morris
Another great kit by tamiya. Only used filler once. Great fits. No flash and ejector pins hardly noticeable. Detail is awesome. Builds great straight out of box. Figures are high quality.
