Building the M3 Lee
Several Years ago I was delighted when Academy released a new kit of the M3 Lee and of course I had to get one. As it turned out there were some issues with the kit though, such as the height of the bogies, a strange bulge in the turret below the commander’s hatch, too small storage boxes and an exhaust layout that was not used in combat, to name but a few. So, with references by Squadron Signal and Osprey and the “Military Modelling” build article of Steven Zaloga (issue 9 of 2006) in hand I set about correcting the kit.
