1/48 Tamiya M-10 Tank Destroyer


The kit for this year’s NSW Scale Model Show’s “Panzer Tracks” trophy is any of the five (5) Tamiya kits that use the M4 Sherman hull.

I already had several of these kits in the stash as the New Zealand Division had quite a bit of armour in WW II, much of being based on the Sherman Hull. I decided on the M-10.

The model is depicted as a vehicle from A Troop 31 Battery, 7th Anti Tank Regiment 2nd NZ Division , Italy late 1944.

I really wanted to add a figure but there's virtually no decent, easily available or affordable 48 scale Commonwealth figures. I have the Tamiya set but there was nothing there that I liked the look of for this kit
