Takom is extending the family of M3 tanks with a late production Lee.
The kit will include transparent and photoech parts, so as decorations for four vehicles. There will be also a jig to help building the tracks.

Though I would prefer that Takom would include the option of side doors so a greater variety of vehicles could be modeled, the units photographed training in Ireland were the same that arrived for Torch so for me that us enough evidence that the tanks were there. There are a couple if hundred tanks in the motorpool not every single one was photographed. Safe to assume the great majority escaped any sort of documentation outside of the usual issue and maintenance documents.

Yup, while waiting (for years!) for Academy to release an M-31 someone else releases a BETTER one! Gonna have to look into this.

I thought there were M3s with later bogies with offset return rollers

Only M3A4s and some vehicles converted to other types. The Australians kept their tanks long after the war and appear to have upgraded the bogies. KL

The included marking options, info from the instruction booklet: One Beutepanzer with Balkenkreuz, Pz.Kpfw M3 744(a) Three different tanks of 1st Armored Division, Perham Downs, England, December 1942. Name and large number on rear side of turret: Coffee-Grinder 9, C-9 Barbarian 4, B-14 and Buccaneer 7, B-17 The instructions do not indicate any optional parts or alternative assembly sequences. A number of holes need to be drilled in the engine deck for the tools. / Robin
