Yes, this is one of the confounding things about Tamiya's.....

Response to Yes

ignoring the US half-tracks. One good kit could be converted into at least a dozen different variants, most based on the M3 but others based on the shorter M2 scout car. The M2 could be also the M4/M4A1 mortar carrier and the M2 armed with the M3 37mm AT gun as used by 2nd AD. It could also be used for an M15 MGMC (2x.50MG and 1x37mm). The M3/M3A1 could be done as the M3 GMC, M3 command/radio vehicle and the M16 MGMC. Dennis's very early tires could allow building an early North African vehicle, either M2 or M3, or M3 GMC. The same chassis and most details could be used for the M5/M9 Lend-Lease versions used by British and Commonwealth countries. I admit I have given up expecting Tamiya ever doing this, because Shunsaku Tamiya marches to his own drummer, and the drummer is on something.....happy.gif
