I wanna see this in 1/48

Hi Y'all. I am not much of an armor person but do a lot of figures. However I have always had a soft spot for the M3 and M5 American light tanks, the Stuart family. I have a couple in 1/72, but I would really like to see one in 1/48, a scale that has me constantly considering jumping into armor modeling seriously. Does anyone in this community know of plans to produce a Stuart in 1/48 by any manufacturer?

OK Gordy, more assistance is required. How about a crew for that tank. I am aware of the Tamiya 1/48 stuff. I have looked on the web and cannot seem to find much else. The Gaso-line figures look pretty poorly done to me. Ideas?

The Gaso-line kit of the M5 has a pretty cruddy .30. I cannot find aftermarket mg's in 1/48. Gordy, any one else have any ideas?

The .30 caliber barrel is available in metal from several manufacturers such as Master Model Barrels of Poland. While designed for aircraft, it is the same gun and the same scale. So also look at the various aircraft 30 cal sets designed for aircraft and adapt them to your needs.



Aber has the ammunition belts:


Aires offers 5 in their set 4179:


I am sure you can find more.
