DESCRIPTION

TAMIYA M42 DUSTER W/3 FIGURES 1/35

Tamiya is delighted to announce the re-issue of the classic M42 Duster kit with the same Item number, but now featuring three figures! The M42 Duster was an anti-aircraft vehicle used in conjunction with tank units, equipped with a pair of 40mm cannons on an open-top turret, and powered by a 500hp engine that let it achieve speeds of up to 70km/h. It was accepted into service with the U.S. Army in 1953 and proved an effective anti-aircraft weapons system.
About the Model
This is a 1/35 scale plastic model assembly kit. Length: 180mm, width: 93mm.
There is plenty of detail on the gun, loader’s seat, rifles and more in the interior.
Three marking options are included, offering a choice of U.S., Japan Ground Self Defense Force and former West German Army M42s.
Belt type tracks are modern components that can be painted and attached using Tamiya cement.
The three figures were originally included in the motorized version of this kit (Item 30027, from 1970). They depict crew in the turret, in the act of locating a target.
