Tank destroyers were the US Army's response to blitzkrieg, and were based around the concept of mounting a large anti-tank gun on a light, fast moving vehicle. They served in the Mediterranean, Pacific, and North-West Europe theatres, and were also supplied to other Allied armies. These vehicles form an attractive modelling subject; their open turrets provide plenty of opportunity for detail work, as demonstrated here by the author in clear step-by-step instructions. Packed with tips and techniques from a leading modeller and Allied armour expert, this title covers the M10, M18, M36, and M39, and features modelling projects in 1/35th and 1/72nd scale.
"This is an excellent book. Including a series of projects for modellers of varying abilities is a great decision and the techniques illustrated will serve as a good grounding for all AFV modelling, ensuring the book will remain of value beyond the immediate builds covered." -Rowan Baylis, Armorama (October 2004)
