M3A1 Halftrack
The Carrier, Personnel Half-track M3 was an armored vehicle used by the United States, the British Empire and the other Allies during World War II and the Cold War. Nearly 43,000 were produced, and supplied to the U.S. Army and Marines, as well as British Commonwealth and Soviet Red Army forces, serving on all fronts throughout the war. Credit go's to Daniel Siskind for the design.
About this creation

Front. Took me about 2 days to make, and 1 extra to perfect.

Left. I am happy with the results. :^)

Back. A nice back.

Right. I bought about 600 of the Black tred links from Brickmania, not cheap.

The 30cal. mg.

A nice little seating area.

Drivers compartment.

The winch is good for reeling in the occasional German.

And Oh LOOK...

"Suspension"

The bottom.

and before you EVEN ask, the part then makes it suspension, although it is not technically suspension.

It holds my overflow American Infantry.

Wonder what that bar on the back was? well it was meant to tow my VERY OLD artillery that i made YEARS ago.

A nice convoy completer.

Real M3A1 Halftrack.

Total production of the M3 ran to nearly 41,000 vehicles. To supply the Allied nations International Harvester produced several thousand of a very similar vehicle, the M5 half track for Lend-Lease.

Thanks for watching and please comment.

Quoting Justin of Catron IV Hmm...it's a very cool remake, though it seems that the front is accurate enough, and I didn't see a winch on the real thing...cool build, though! I'm loving the M.G.
I tried to get a pic with the winch, but they did have them.

Quoting Mace Man Excellent work again Christian! I'm really like'n the whinch! But I think you should take out a tread link or two on the tracks.
Unfortunately if i did the treds will lock up and would not move.
