12mm M36 90mm Gun Motor Carriage from Butlers Printed Models

One M36 90mm Gun Motor Carriage, "Jackson" tank destroyer. Available in 6mm (1/285), 12mm (1/144), 15mm (1/100), 20mm (1/76) and 28mm (1/56).

The M36 tank destroyer, formally 90mm Gun Motor Carriage, M36, was an American tank destroyer used during World War II. The M36 combined the hull of the M10 tank destroyer, which used the M4 Sherman's reliable chassis and drive train combined with sloped Armour, and a massive new turret mounting the 90mm gun M3.

Conceived in 1943, the M36 first served in combat in Europe in October 1944, where it partially replaced the M10 tank destroyer. It also saw use in the Korean War, able to defeat any of the Soviet tanks used in that conflict. Some were supplied to South Korea as part of the Military Assistance Program and served for years, as did re-engined examples found in Yugoslavia, which operated into the 1990s. Two remained in service with the Republic of China Army at least until 2001.

2 different variants are available:

M36         - M36 turret on an M10 hull
M36B1     - M36 turret on a Sherman M4A3 hull
