Stefan Halter tells the story behind his build of the M3 lee tank, a build which he started couple of years ago, and now has come to a satisfying end.




Enjoy!

Nice work Stefan: Seeing your completed M3 nudges me closer to finishing my M31 conversion kit (stalled for quite a while). One thing you might want to change is the painting of your tail lights. Only the top left oval was red. The one beneath it and both right lenses were black. Hope this helps.

Looks really nice, Stefan.

I have this kit in my stash, so your article is very relevant. Especially for changes of the stowage boxes and turret.

Thanks for sharing

Thanks guys for your replies, I'm glad it was/will be of help to you all. Matan, thanks for getting this up!

Roy, thanks for the tip, I should have changed it when I got around to it the second time but forgot about it.

Cheers!
Stefan
