Us M8 Greyhound Combat Patrol

  1. Description

    This is a limited-edition model assembly kit which pairs the popular M8 “Greyhound” armored car kit (Item 35228) with existing Tamiya figure and accessories! The kit also includes a bonus sheet for creating new ration cartons. The kit is ideal for anyone creating a mini-diorama straight out of the box.

    The speedy Greyhound was capable of nearly 90km/h and could defend itself too, with a turreted 37mm gun and armor between 10 and 25mm thick. Astonishingly for a vehicle that saw its service debut in 1943, the M8 still serves some militaries even today.

    • 1/35 scale plastic model assembly kit. Length: 143mm.
    • A newly-created sheet depicts the 10-in-1 ration that nourished U.S. troops in the second half of WWII.
    • Includes parts for a figure from Item 35347, which depicts a tanker lugging a large case.
    • Original commander figure from Item 35228 also included.
    • Includes accessories from Item 35229, such as a variety of jerry cans, buckets and oil drums, plus canvas bags and sacks for added diorama options.
    • Parts recreating the M1919 are used from Item 35360.
    • Supplementary instruction sheet includes ideas for positioning of accessories and figures.
