  1. Named after the „father of the US Army armored forces”, General Adna Chaffee, the M24 - arguably the best light tank of World War II - was a fast, lightly armoured vehicle, capable of delivering relatively large caliber direct fire from its excellent 75mm M6 gun. This retained the ballistic capabilities of the Sherman M3 gun, despite the thin-walled barrel, developed for the M5 variant, intended for use in the B-25H Mitchell attack aircraft. The first vehicles reached Europe in late 1944, replacing the vintage M3 and M5 Stuart tanks, still armed with a 37mm gun. Chris
  2. The unit in question received its first M24 in the last week of February 1945, still in France. They entered Germany in March and reached the Austrian Tyrol in May. AFAIK two M24s from the 117th CRS are the only Chaffees credited with destroying the PzKpfw VI Tiger. Unfortunately, in the photos I have not seen either serial numbers (e.g. US 30126435) or unit markings (e.g. 4C-117R-A-6). Neither on the hulls (front or rear) nor the fenders. Were these tanks unmarked or was it just an intervention by a censor? Cheers Michael
  3. Hi Pals, I finish this small project, and here we can see the model as it has been finished. I think the result has been worth it, because above all, the original tracks were "horrible", with no hint of quality, all along with the antiquity that the kit had, made a revision necessary. The other improvements, have given a touch something different from the one I had when I finished it at the time, because the barrel gun is longer than the kit, and the revision / restructuring of the equipments, I think they have changed the aspect of the model as a whole. I a
  4. Hi Pals, Here is a new small project of the "Renove Plan" to which I am submitting some of my "old" kits ... lol. Today I decided to "attack" the M24 Chaffee de Italeri, which would be the second improvement attempt on him, and I would say it will be the final one. This time it will be a "third party" improvement, because basically I have acquired some new tracks and a barrel gun as well. Undoubtedly, the most ominous part of this model, were the tracks, which is the heel of Achilles of all these oldies that had saved, because the material with w
