1/35 IDF M3 Halftrack - Smart Kit

Barcode: 0 89195 83569 7
Case Pack: 20
Box Size: 9.6" x 15" x 3.1"

Based on our M3 half track, this IDF counterpart has many new tooled parts and photo-etched parts to depict the characteristics. Included are bonus backpacks hung on the hull side.

The decisive Six-Day War fought between Israel and its neighbors will achieve its 50th anniversary next year. Between now and then, Dragon is releasing a series of 1/35 scale kits highlighting equipment that was critical to that famous Middle East conflict. Here comes another Israeli vehicle. It’s an M3 halftrack, a type used widely by the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) at that time. American production of the M3 ran into the thousands, and after WWII many nations sold off their stocks to countries like Israel. The M3 in IDF service was an important vehicle for mechanized infantry, it being a forerunner to proper armored personnel carriers like the M113 that Israel later fielded in large numbers.

This 1/35 scale kit inherits the excellent foundational features of Dragon’s model of a WWII American M3 halftrack. However, it has been suitably modified to represent an Israeli M3 in the period of the Six-Day War. For example, there is a new machine gun mount above the front windscreen armor. A typical characteristic of Israeli halftracks was the mass of backpacks and kit stowed on and dangling off the sides of vehicles. This flurry of equipment is perfectly captured with a range of kit accessories made from DS, the ideal material to make such items from. This is a highly detailed and realistic model of an M3 halftrack fighting during the bitterly contested Six-Day War. Indeed, because such halftracks were used long before and after the 1967 conflict, this kit offers enormous modeling versatility too. It will definitely benefit any collection and will whet modelers appetites for even more Israeli subjects from Dragon’s Six-Day War collection!
