Mirage 1/72 M3 'General Grant CDL (Canal Defence Light)', Late Version (review by HenkofHolland)



Preview Mirage Kit 729001 - Medium Tank M3 'General Grant CDL (Canal Defence Light)', Late Version

Review by Henk Timmerman / HenkofHolland

The M3 Medium Tank with welded hull and 'General Grant CDL (Canal Defence Light) turret is an other variant of the M3 Medium tank.
The lower and upper  upper hull is identical as others versions with the welded upperhull.

The only difference in this box is the new CDL turret which is well done. In opposition with the standard box is this kit packed in a much bigger box.

The variants of the Mirage M3 medium tank is allready more times reviewed, so I will refer for more information and or comments, to available previews / reviews.
