LZ Models 1/35 WWII US M29 Weasel Tracked Vehicle Kit (Resin)
The M29 weasel was a tracked vehicle developed and manufactured from 1943. Originally designated T24, it was standardized as Cargo Carrier M29 later in 1943, manufactured by Studebaker. During WWII the weasel was used in Italy early 1944 and later in Western Europe and in the Pacific. During this time, there were many changes in design. The first 2,103 had 380 mm tracks, later version 510 mm. The M29 was amphibious, but with a very low freeboard. Watertight cells added at the front and rear to increase flotation - creating M29C. These cells could be removed for operations in the field. During WWII over 15,000 vehicles were produced, as the weasel appeared to be a most useful transport and supply vehicle.
