This is a limited-edition model assembly kit which pairs the popular M8 “Greyhound” armored car kit (Item 35228) with existing Tamiya figure and accessories! The kit also includes a bonus sheet for creating new ration cartons. The kit is ideal for anyone creating a mini-diorama straight out of the box.
The speedy Greyhound was capable of nearly 90km/h and could defend itself too, with a turreted 37mm gun and armor between 10 and 25mm thick. Astonishingly for a vehicle that saw its service debut in 1943, the M8 still serves some militaries even today.
