Look very nice. I actually started AFVClub's M5A1 LATE last night. One thing I would consider is turning the tow cable around 180 degrees where it's attached to the front hull. You can see the joint where AFVClub wants you to place the string into the cable end. Other than that, it looks really nice, like the stowage, paint, etc.

thanks for feedback. you are right about towing cable and I didn't notice it when taking pictures I should have used some putty and will do that, actually! Just keep in mind that you need to modify turret a little bit LINK

Just keep in mind that you need to modify turret a little bit LINK Yeah, I'm building kit 35161, so I don't have to modify the turret. Looks like you used the AFVClub's optional PE set??? How did that work out? I have that set as well, along with their indy link tracks, which I've used before we good results.

I think this set was made by Voyager, actually. Quality is OK. I also used PE set for turret browning from Voyager and spare wheel holder is cratchbuild. Track pads on front armor were with the kit - it is a sprue of AFV club indy tracks.

Looks fantastic Roman! I especially like the extra track pads and gear stowed on the back. Very convincing look. Thanks for sharing with the rest of us!

Good Job, Roman I like it. Ive to do an old Tamiya too. May by I could use your model as an example.- Omar

thanks for feedback! I got this idea from the book by Hunnicutt, R. P. "Stuart, A History of the American Light Tank."

Hi Omar, for the Tamiya kit - see S.Zaloga's book "Modelling the M3/M5 Stuart Light Tank". Very useful one!
