This is my completion of a kit started by a man who died before he could finish it. That was something of a habit for this guy to start a kit, get to some point, lose interest, then start another kit. He had scores of kits like this, ranging from barely started to nearly completed. This one fell into the later category, being roughly 90% complete, just needing the tracks, OVM tools, headlight lenses, and an antenna added, and some broken off grab handles replaced…. and then redoing the finish. AZ AMPS members bought up a bunch of this guys kits, and several of us finished up some of them to send them as a tribute collection at IPMS Nationals in a few weeks. I finished this Takom M3 Lee for my contribution to this task.
I don’t think this one will win any prizes, but it is a great addition to my 1/35 Red Army tank fleet…
Well, with all the info on the Grant Barn Find thread, you can always build it as a (fictitious) pre-restoration item, with a tree growing through it… Useful if there are bits missing, and you dont have to mess about with tracks.
AZ AMPS is putting it on. I know that there is a 1/16 Africa early Tiger I and 1/16 Norway campaign Panzer IB also part of the display. I’m not sure what else we have going from the other guys in the club.
