On one of my now numerous visits to Dunedin, and the corresponding visit to their major hobby shop, I spotted a box of the Italeri M3 75mm half tracks. I'd been on the look out for more of the Italeri quick build M3 half tracks for the British armoured regiment (the Spearhead army in 20mm).
I thought that the 75mm gunned vehicles would make nice AT for the nascent 20mm American force.
What I didn't realise at the time was that these M3s were only used in North Africa and Sicily/Italy, by both the Brits and the Americans. There are more effective AT options for the North West Europe American forces, but these are .. well,.. 'kinda cute' (is it right to apply that adjective to weapons of war??).
Having bought them, it seemed a shame not to assemble them, and they may well appear with the American forces once complete, Italy or otherwise.
That's another box gone from the games room and into the recycling bin. I'm slowly whittling down on the number of boxes to be packed away.
