Does anyone do the M3 Stuart in 1/76th apart from Matchbox/Revell? I have been gifted several of the Matchbox ones and was hoping to find a close match in resin or plastic as the Matchbox/Revell ones are hard to find. The MMS and SHQ metal versions are a little too expensive for me unfortunately. Thanks.

Is the PSC 1/72 version too far out?

Milicast or Butlers Printed Models, depending on your pocket depth…

…and Frontline do a decent Stuart too.

Are Frontline 1/76th or 1/72nd?

1/76. I have Matchbox Stuarts and the Frontline version fits well. All my desert stuff is 1/76 so I've built up a decent knowledge of what works together!

Hasegawa made one, but the box claims "1/72", however, if you search for a size comparison online you may find the dimensions.

Of course, you could just have a 1/72 spaced apart from a 1/76 and it may be fine. (like 25mm and 28mm figures, or 1/76 and 1/72 figures)

Forget Hasegawa – it is massively overscale even for 1/72. Stephen Brezinski reckons it's about 1/70:

Thank you for everyones input. Good to hear the Frontline M3;'s match the Matchbox version.

Yes, Hasegawa is enormous. It was the first plastic kit Stuart ever produced (about 1972?), so I have many. I have finally gotten enough from both Hasegawa and Matchbox that I can keep the Hasegawas as British "Honeys" and paint all the Matchbox as US for Tunisia (there are several later US models -- M5, etc. -- that fit well in size with Matchbox). Much better appearance on the game table now.

BTW, if you want to see a really huge Stuart, try the metal one that used to be sold at WalMart. It's nearly a 1/60 scale IMO.

Milicast without a doubt
