Osprey Modelling #13: Modelling US Tank Destroyers of World War II Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Tank destroyers were the US Army's response to blitzkrieg, and were based around the concept of mounting a large anti-tank gun on a light, fast moving vehicle. They served in the Mediterranean, Pacific, and North-West Europe theatres, and were also supplied to other Allied armies. These vehicles form an attractive modelling subject; their open turrets provide plenty of opportunity for detail work, as demonstrated here by the author in clear step-by-step instructions. Packed with tips and techniques from a leading modeller and Allied armour expert, this title covers the M10, M18, M36, and M39, and features modelling projects in 1/35th and 1/72nd scale.

Synopsis:

Unwilling to deploy its armor battalions to stave off opposing tanks, America raised a number of specialized tank destroyer battalions, both towed and self propelled, that could take on Germany's AFVs. This book offers a guide to modelling the M18 Hellcat, the M3/M5 Stuart Light Tank, the M4 Sherman and more, and will be valuable for modellers of all abilities.
