HobbyBoss 1:35 M3A1 Scout Car 'White' Late Version


HobbyBoss 1:35 - M3A1 Scout Car 'White' Late Version - Plastic model kit #82452

Production of the U.S. 'White' M3A1 scout car (named after its manufacturer, the White Motor Company) started in 1940 with 20,918 vehicles built until 1944. Initially it was used by armoured and reconnaissance units, but it was better suited for road use than for cross-country terrain. During the war the M3A1 was not often used in the dangerous role of a scout vehicle. Trial versions included the M3A1E1 with a diesel engine, the M3A1E2 with an armored roof, and the M3A1E3 mounting a 37mm (1.46 in) gun on a rotating pedestal. By 1943 it became clear that the vehicle had poor off-road mobility and poor armament, and it was replaced with the M8 armoured car and similar M20 Utility Car in most of the US Army units. The M3 was supplied in large numbers under Lend-Lease to the Soviet Union and to Free French forces. After the war, vehicles were exported to Israel and other countries, where they served for many years.
