The M3 and M5 Stuart were the most significant light tanks of the US Army, as well as many other allied armies, during World War II. They have proved to be popular modelling subjects ever since, largely due to the large number of kits available in many different scales covering a broad selection of the different variants used. The Stuarts were also painted in a wide range of colourful camouflage schemes, reflecting their widespread service, and this adds to their appeal. This title shows a number of different ways to model this popular tank in 1/35 scale, covering construction, painting and weathering the vehicle.
"Lots of excellent information, techniques, tips, construction methods, and of course, as we all expect from Osprey, top notch photography throughout the entire publication…A perfect addition to your home library." -Mark R. Smith, Armorama (December 2004)
"In his latest book Steven Zaloga shows how to accurately model the Tamiya kit, along with offering from Academy and AFV Club." -Rodger Cole, Armorama (January 2004)
The good: research, in progress steps well documented, a number of differnt stuarts all in the same book. A complete package for the same price as what you could pay for a single issue of a high-end model magazine
The fair: some photos appear washed out, others are too dark or too small.
The poor: 20 of the 80 pages are re-hashed models and articles that he has written for Military Modelling. If you already have those magazines, then this book could be a bit of a let down. I didn't, so I appreciate having all the Stuart info in one volume.
Osprey would do well to get rid of a lot of the repetative text such as "I did this, then I did this, then I did this" which is inevitable in this type of book, and instead use the space to do some full page and half page photos of the work. In this case, pictures really do speak a thousand words. Overall 4/5 stars, very good value.
