About this creation
The M3 Stuart, formally Light Tank M3, was an American light tank of World War II. It was supplied to British and Commonwealth forces under lend-lease prior to the entry of the U.S. into the war. Thereafter, it was used by U.S. and Allied forces until the end of the war.

The name General Stuart or Stuart given by the British comes from the American Civil War Confederate General J.E.B. Stuart and was used for both the M3 and the derivative M5 Light Tank. In British service, it also had the unofficial nickname of Honey after a tank driver remarked "She's a honey".
To the United States Army, the tanks were officially known only as "Light Tank M3" and "Light Tank M5".

The M3 Stuarts were the first American-crewed tanks in World War II to engage the enemy in tank versus tank combat.

The model is re-created the M5 Stuart with 75mm howitzer and turret of 'M8a1.

I don't know much about tanks or authenticity, but this little dude rocks! Compact and tough looking, not a brick was wasted on this one.

Nice, but this is actually the Howitzer Motor Carriage M8, since that is the name of the M5 with the 75mm howitzer. But it's really cool, you took a new approach to the turret, I like it!

Quoting Jerry Temple It's not really an M5 Stuart, it's the M8 Scott HMC. Perhaps consider renaming the MOC? Excellent M8 nonetheless, interesting turret technique! When are you going to upload the rest of the tanks in your "Coming Soon" MOC?
Well, we say it is a mix of tank, but the base from which I took inspiration is the M5, exactly, are the tank of coming soon, I will post all in these days.
