As the above states,does anybody know of any corrections to this kit?I was looking throught the kit and I ve seen some thing that are normal,ie the headlight guards need to be thinned,or replaces,but are they any other things,such as,wrong placement of parts,or some tgings that are so wrong,that they wouldn't get past a judge?

The only info I can offer on improving the kit can be found in the August 2002 issue of Military Modelcraft International. I can't seem to locate my copy...

Eduard did make a PE set for this kit, 35065. I do not know if it is still available though. This is a very old kit that started out as a Peerless/Max kit in the 60s. Still holds up fairly well.

I've got a 3 page article on building the Zvezda (Russian reboxed) M3A1Scout Car. If you want it, PM me your address and I'll send a photocopy to you on Monday. It is from the August 1997 Military in Scale magazine. Someone was nice enough to send it to me, I can repay the favor by passing it on.

I've just paid a visit to the Eduard website and the old 35065 update set for the White M3A1 is not anymore available (digging in my PE stock I was able to find one). Anyway there's a revises set that looks to be quite complete and is the 35488. If you follow this link you get to the set description and you are able to download the instructions too...
