M3 White Scout Car

on Sat Jul 14, 2018 12:14 am
I'm curious... The speed of the White scout car is 8" off road (understandable) but only 12" on road. All other similar vehicles tend to be 24" on road so why is this vehicle so slow? Some tanks are faster. Is this just a typo?

It is a typo, road speed should be 24".

There are several typos in the overlord book, if in doubt check other books.

Typo. The real problem is to get a White scout car!!! The old Esci one is very hard to come by.

The EWM one is 1/76th though, and PSC M3s will dwarf it. There is the new AccGB 1/72nd kit, but pricey at £18 each. Might have to get 1 anyway.

It’s a bit hard to tell, but are the crew Moulder in on the EWM kit?

I’m waiting on the Sgts Mess version to have a look at it, I’m quite happy with their Beeps so hopefully it will be the same sturdy
Beast so I can populate it with the AB Soviets

Yes the EWM version does have the crew moulded in, but luckily for me in Kelly helmets so easy to use for British. I'm sure a head swap would be easy.

Been all over the EWM site and I can't see M3 scout cars in either the British or USA sections. Is there a secret knock or handshake to get at them?

Cheers, Andy

I had the M3 Scout when Skytrex still owned it. Although listed as 1/76 several were a bit larger and mine seemed to fit well with 1/72 but I was not so scale conscious in those days. EWM may have rescaled the model too.

Fantastic, thanks.  I'd been through the Late War Brits and US kit and then the early war Brits, but for some reason never thought to look in early war US.  Looks good and fills a gap.

Cheers, Andy

Brittania does one that is good. Grubby Tanks carries it (and others, of course). Andy is great to deal with, and his delivery is fast, even on this side of the pond!

So does anyone have the Esci, EWM and Britannia White Scout cars they could do a comparison shot of. I received the Sgts Mess one but it seems bigger than the Esci one and the shape seems different when compared with the Esci one
