Description

This is a United States Army M10 Tank Destroyer 1/35 scale model from Tamiya. One of the more famous armored vehicles from WWII and a previous subject of Tamiya's 1/48 scale Military Miniatures series, this depicts the M10 in glorious 1/35 scale detail. Apart from the machine gun and clear parts, all of the parts used in this model have been custom tooled to faithfully represent the M10.


The M10 was developed during WWII as a response to the surprisingly effective German armor tactics, which prompted a new philosophy of armor tactics that required dedicated tank destroyers to counter them. After trying out a couple of different designs, they eventually ended with the incredibly successful M10 design featuring steep-sloped but thin (to improve maneuverability) armor plate and a power 3-inch (76.2mm) gun. Over 4,900 were produced, it debuted in Operation Torch of the North African campaign, where it proved its efficacy against German tanks. The M10 would continue to fight in Italy, the Battle of Normandy, and eventually advanced upon Germany to help bring the terrible conflict to an end.


Features:

  • Intensive study and measurement of the M10 in the tank museum at Saumur led to this highly detailed depiction of its form complete with sloped armor, right down to auxiliary armor bosses.
  • The open top of the distinctive turret allows viewing of the 3-inch gun breech and realistic interior.
  • Compare and contrast depictions of surface textures such as the cast mantle and differential cover versus the welded armor plate of the turret sides and upper hull.
  • Belt-type parts recreate T51 tracks.
  • Driver's hatch can be attached in open or closed position, and features periscope depiction.
  • Comes with 3 figures (commander, loader, gunner) in realistic pose, plus 2 marking options for recreating M10s belonging to the 601st and 634th U.S. Tank Destroyer Battalions
