Yet another finely detailed and superbly built resin vehicle joins the massed ranks of our Bolt Action range of 1:56 scale WWII vehicles – this time, the M8 Scott GMC.

M8 Scott GMC

Developed on the chassis of the then new Light Tank M5 (Stuart VI), the test vehicle had the standard M5 turret removed and replaced with an open-topped turret.

Armament consisted of a new open-topped turret armed with a 75mm M2 howitzer, later a 75mm M3 howitzer, which were reworks of the M1A1 pack howitzer. It carried 46 rounds of 75mm ammunition; types of ammunition carried were Smoke M89 and H.E. (high explosive) M48. The only other armament was a Browning .50-caliber machinegun for local-area and anti-aircraft defense; 400 rounds of .50-caliber were stowed on-board.

The M8 saw action in the Italian Campaign, the Western Front, and in the Pacific Theater of Operations during the war.

This cracking new resin vehicle comes with integral crew, as well as separate heads and a .50 cal HMG for extra defense. You can add one to your collection from our webstore.
