12mm Stuart Tank from Butlers Printed Models

One WW2 Stuart light tank. Available in 6mm (1/285), 12mm (1/144), 15mm (1/100), 20mm (1/76) and 28mm (1/56).

The M3 Stuart, officially Light Tank, M3, was an American light tank of World War II. An improved version entered service as M5. It was supplied to British and other Commonwealth forces under lend-lease prior to the entry of the U.S. into the war. Thereafter, it was used by U.S. and Allied forces until the end of the war.

The British service name "Stuart" came from the American Civil War Confederate general J. E. B. Stuart and was used for both the M3 and the derivative M5 Light Tank. In U.S. use, the tanks were officially known as "Light Tank M3" and "Light Tank M5".

Stuarts were the first American-crewed tanks in World War II to engage the enemy in tank versus tank combat.

The Stuart was also the light tank counterpart of the M3 Lee, which was a medium tank.

9 different variants are available:

M3 Early - with sponson machine guns
M3 Late - Stuart I / II or Honey Stuart
M3 Hybrid - An M3 body with M3A1 turret
M3A1 - Stuart III / IV
M3A3 - Stuart V
M5 - Stuart VI - with M3A1 turret
M5A1 - Stuart VI with M3A3 turret
M3A3 Recce - turretless version used by Commonwealth countries
Flame Tank - M3A1 with short flame gun barrel
