U.S. Howitzer Motor Carriage M8

Tamiya, 1/48 scale

by Brett Green


Here is my final completed model for 2023.



The third and final instalment of Bruce Culver’s excellent reference series on the M3 / M5 / M8 US light tanks will appear in Issue 215 of Model Military International magazine so I thought I would accompany Bruce’s piece with a model article.

This is Tamiya’s recent 1:48 scale M8 Howitzer Motor Carriage with Djiti’s Production’s T36E6 Steel Type tracks (Item No. 48009) and US Soldier WW2 (Item No. 48010) plus Value Gear stowage and some tarps from Kneadatite Blue/Yellow Epoxy Putty.

The model is finished in Star Decals too.



The Djiti’s Production one-piece 3d printed tracks are particularly impressive. Printing is flawess, fit is perfect and installation is very fast.



Keep an eye out for these in Issue 215 of Model Military International magazine!
