Canal Defense Light

Kit : # 729001

Review by Henk Timmerman HenkofHolland

The M3 Medium Tank with welded hull in combination with the CDL (Canal Defense Light) turret is another variant of the M3 Medium tank.

The lower hull and suspension sprues in the box are identical to all other released variants with the welded upper hull. The only difference being the new CDL turret, which is well done. However, for some unknown reason, this kit is packed in a much bigger box then the standard "Mirage" format.

The Mirage M3 medium tank itself has already been reviewed many times, so I will refer for more information and/or comments, to these pages :
