I've been looking around for M5 Stuarts or M8 HMCs in 1/72. I can find some in 1/76, but nothing in the slightly larger scale. Does anyone know of any, please?

Frontline do a resin M5 Stuart in "20mm" scale and click on 20mm WW2 Vehicles.

Actually the Skytrex one is excellent some somewhere in here

I bought the 1/72 Rafm version of M5 and M8 a few years back. Good shape and detail. Big. Heavy like a block of lead. Dunno if they still make them.

Zippy, RAFM is still very much alive and kickin'and they make that fancy M5 complete with Cullen Hedgerow Device:


While I don't own an M5 from RAFM but I do own copious amounts of their French AFVs, I can vouch for their overall quality and size. IMHO they're very good value for the money (and heft of the metal!).

Hope this helps!evil grin

Thanks all! The RAFM M5 looks very tempting… and they do an M8 too! I'll find out what it would cost to import a couple.

I'd seen the Skytrex/Hincliffe one but fret that it might be too small as it is badged at 1/76. The Frontline Resin one is so cheap I really should take a punt at that, too!

Cheers, Simon

I've got the M5 and M8 and a ton of other 20mm I'm selling if you're interested. Contact me, I'll PM you my e-mail address.

Big Red Flyin' Rat, they also make an M20 Utility Car as well, plus other goodies like the 3-inch Anti-Tank gun and other mischief.

It really is an underappreciated line of white metal WW2 vehicle kits IMHO!evil grin

You can found on ebay 1/72 diecast M5, very nice.
Hobby Master produce a M5 & will do soon a M8.
