This model kit requires assembly. Cement, paint and other construction materials not included unless specifically stated in the description.
This is an Italeri model kit of the M24 Chaffee packaged in a Tamiya box with Tamiya instructions, plus a figure, a host of accessories, and even new and remolded parts. The M24 Chaffee was officially adopted in 1944 as a successor to the M3/5 Stuart light tanks. It was equipped with the compact 75mm gun (originally developed for the B25 Mitchell bomber) and - somewhat unusually for a U.S. AFV - torsion bar suspension. It made it into service in Europe before the cessation of hostilities in WWII, and served on and on through the Korean War and - in some places - even into the 1980s.
- Italeri's classic kit is given a new lease of life, with new and updated parts!
- Includes a highly realistic aluminum gun barrel.
- Features assembly-type WWII tracks with single-piece straight sections.
- Turret has newly added WWII antenna base parts and weld lines.
- Accessories include M2, ammunition boxes, bags, folded sheets and jerry cans.
- Comes with a commander torso figure, plus marking options for the vehicles on the Italian front and in Germany.
