Kit Preview : 1/76 MMS Marmon Herrington MkII A/Crt
About the manufacturer
MMS is the leading 1/76 white metal model brand. The quality of casting and level of detail are comparable to traditional plastic kits, albeit without etched metal detailing. Smaller details such as mirrors are often omitted, and the running gear of tracked vehicles is usually a simplified one piece casting where the guide teeth are backed by a solid metal strengthening strip.
Due to the tight packaging in unprotected plastic bags, parts often come bent or one might say, with pre-built battle damage. Care must be taken to straighten things out lest parts be broken.
About the vehicle
About the kit
This is a straightforward build. A couple nitpicks:
the Boys rifle is much too thin and distorted,
the Bren coaxial MG looks like more like a BESA,
the gap between the roof and the hull must be filled in.
The 1/35 model will illustrate what the vehicle should look like.
Overall a very nice kit. Most pictures I have seen show them in caunter camouflage.
