M3 Stuart’s at Buna - which kit?

Postby Peter Roberts » Mon Feb 11, 2019 5:25 am

I would like to do an Australian M3 that fought at Buna, probably 'Cabby' from the recent Star decals sheet (subject B), but I see there are a variety of M3 kits available including ‘early’, ‘late’ and ‘British’ versions, and I presume US.

Can anyone point me to which version I should use please?

thank you

It's my understanding that the Academy "Honey" boxing with the Mouse house conversion set is best for an accurate Buna Stuart.(please correct me if I'm wrong).

If you're into 1/72 scale, then Mirage has a new Aussie Buna version.
