About John Steinman (Sticky)
FROM: VERMONT, UNITED STATES

Hello I am a 50 something Orthodontist. I have been building models since age 6, but took a 10 year break from 1992 through part of 2003. I have a loving wife and two kids. My other interest besides my family and models are; computers, cooking, snowshoeing and hiking.


Comments

Thanks! The only aftermarket Items I used where the Eduard PE set, Archer dry transferes, and K59 Drive sprocket and Idler. The rest is scratch built. My main reference was Hunnicut's book on the halftrack. The straps were removable. Thanks everyone for your comments.

I like it a lot. I think US Halftracks are cool. Funny think is I only have an M21

I got my M21 at Lucky Models. http://www.luckymodel.com/scale.aspx?search=Y&q_brand=TAM&q_category=AR&q_scale=35&q_word=M21 I agree that it's the best of the bunch.

nice build I love the U.S. Half Tracks.. just a quick question... wasn't the M16 called Multiple GunMotor Carriage.. (MGMC) my references have the HMC as the designation of some of the Howitzer Motor Carriage variants

M21 the best of the bunch? Heck that means the M16 and M3A2 (we all know it isn't the right WW2 version)are all downhill from here!

Don't despair! Apparently the M3 and M21 are mutually essential as kitbashing the two gives you a more correct version of both. And (as we see from Sticky's model) the M16 can be built into a very cool model. MC

Yep, your right Delbert, thanks for catching my Goofs n Gaffs!
