In-Box Review
AFVisual The M36

by: Ken Fortier [ KENCELOT ]


Originally published on:
Armorama

The second in the new series by Letterman Productions focuses on the M36 tank destroyer. This one is authored by David Doyle, and follows the same format as the first. A good thing, because it could not be easier to follow - clean pictures with simple enough descriptions. It features 51 pages of high quality B&W photos.

 

Contents
Each page is filled with one large or several smaller, crisp pictures of the M36's design and development stages. There are plenty of close ups for the detail hungry which cover some of the more interesting features of the tank destroyer. The turret interior is well covered along with the armored roof with it's differing hatch open/closed positions.
It covers both "testing grounds" and "in-action" photos throughout.
While a few of the pictures within can be found in other publications, there are plenty that are original to keep you visually occupied.

 

Conclusion
For anyone wishing to super detail their Academy kit, or future AFV Club kit, this book is indispensable. Even if you're just curious about this U.S. tank destroyer, I highly recommend it.

With this books comes high expectations of their future releases.

Like many, I developed an interest in building models when I was around 8 years young. I remember my mother keeping my interest in them by joining a "model a month" club back in the mid 70s. Things like the Lunar Lander, and a Braniff International 747 were some of the kits I'd build that came in th...
