Hasegawa - 1/72 LIGHT TANK M3 STUART Mk.I

The M3 turret was later changed to a welded octagonal turret (type D38976), represented by Hasegawa’s kit #MT3 500 [a.k.a. #31103]. Later the octagonal turret was dropped in favor of a welded horseshoe-shaped turret (type D39273) and with a prominent, lozenge-shaped cupola. The British introduced the designation ‘Stuart’ for this light tank though in the desert it was often referred to as the “Honey” because they like it so well due to its good armor and reliability. This version of the M3 served with British and US forces in North Africa, and with US forces in the Pacific theatre and in training. [Note that Matchbox’s 1/76 scale M3 kit offers both the octagonal and the horseshoe-shaped M3 turrets.] Though Hasegawa’s box art shows fuel drums stored on the sponsons, they are not included in Hasegawa’s M3 kit, and I have never seen them on an M3. My references state the drums were mounted only on the M3A1, as modeled by Mirage’s M3A1.
