M10 Wolverine

Designed to fulfill a new combined-arms doctrine that emphasized the need for infantry support and exploitation, the M10 tank destroyer first entered service in Tunisia in 1943. Called "Wolverine" by the British (a name that was never adopted by US soldiers), the M10 was lightly armored and therefore more maneuverable than a typical tank. Its powerful 3" M7 gun fired armor-piercing M79 shot, which made it an effective weapon against enemy tanks. Upon its debut it was capable of destroying most German tanks, but by 1944 the newer German Tiger and Panther proved too formidable for it, though it remained in service through the end of the war.

Hobby Master's 1:72 scale M-10 Wolverine is constructed almost entirely from plastic, with the exception of the diecast metal bottom hull, which gives this model its characteristic weight. The opened top turret reveals a pivoting metal cannon and breech, six ammo rounds with bronze casings, three crew seats and a 50 cal machine gun with attached ammo can. When the turret is removed completely, additional details such as forward driver seats, additional ammo and diamond plated deck can be seen. The hull features shielded headlights and taillights, hand-painted battlefield equipment such as shovels, hatchets and hammers, and a beautifully recreated vertical volute spring suspension system.
