I'm so surprised and many thanks to Darren Baker and Armorama team for giving me this valuable chance to make a contribution here! Hope that all of you enjoy the photos and may become a good reference for everyone interested about Indonesian history, especially armored vehicle used during post war independence period (after 1945) ^^

I love Stuart tanks, I don't know why, but I just love the look of them, when I was younger, me and my dad would compare allied and German ww2 tanks, and I would always pick the Stuart, and he would just laugh at me. I am now going to buy a whole heap of Stuart kits and make many variants, including an Australian one at buna, using a conversion set, so please watch this space!

Hello mate Cameron, nice to know you! So many thanks to add your comments here. Yeah, I think several people have their basic instinct, including you, hmmm.. just like falling love at the first sight, right? Beside that, I don't see any odds regarding to your attention on Stuart. Maybe your admiration focused on her compact design for an Allied medium tank commonly appear at that time. Maybe also how she efficiently run in battlefield at that time. So subjective and that's cool man I guess that your father was an admirer for Tiger or Panther or any German's heavy tank.. Good luck mate for your Stuart kit and I'm sure it will be a great finished model! Let me know how you work on it Warm regards from Indonesia Garry

thank you for your reply Garry! firstly, my dad loved the panther and tiger 1s, and i guess that i love the stuart because of its shape maybe? for my project, i am going to use the Academy m3a1, and replace the suspension with a correction set from afv club, and a australian stuart conversion set from mouse house australia. but first i have to save my money and see where i can purchase those sets from and the price

Hi Rick: Do you have any photos showing the engine deck? I was wondering if it was a gas/petrol or diesel tank. Thanks for the photos, KL

Hello mate Kurt! Sorry for my loooooooooong reply, almost 1 year! For now, I have not. But, I plan to go national army museum near my home and sure not the similar tank, but there is another Stuart that I can take its photos.
