Overall rating

Tamiya US M8 Light Armored Car is a great choice for hobby enthusiasts of all ages. This highly detailed model is perfect for those looking to recreate a realistic WWII-era military vehicle. The kit includes a detailed plastic body, tracks, decals, and other parts to complete the build. The M8 Light Armored Car is a great way to add a unique piece to your collection.

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.

  • 1/35 scale plastic model assembly kit. Length: 143mm.
  • A newly-created sheet depicts the 10-in-1 ration that nourished U.S. troops in the second half of WWII.
  • Includes parts for a figure from Item 35347, which depicts a tanker lugging a large case.
