This is Hasegawa’s M3 Grant. Many of the sprues are shared with their Lee, with the exception of the British-style turret. The turret is undersized but I did not attempt to replace it. There are several additional changes, which I hope will serve to better differentiate it from the Lee;
– The stowage boxes on the engine deck are a different size and shape. I shortened the kit boxes, filed them down, and reversed their sides to get the proper angles. They should be asymmetric, the one on the starboard side is shorter.
– Side skirts are fitted.
– Side rails added, these were supports for bows and canvas to make the tanks look like lorries from the air.
– The 75mm hull gun has a cover built up with masking tape, superglue, and Mr. Surfacer.
– Stowage added.
