Airfix Catalogue description:

Armed with a hard hitting 75mm gun, the American M3 Lee tank proved a formidable fighting machine in battles with the Germans in North Africa and the Japanese in the Pacific. Produced as a stop-gap measure in 1940 prior to the introduction of a more battle-worthy tank, the Lee fought the German Panzer IVs and Tiger Is in Tunisia and despite heavy losses turned the tide of battle in favour of the Allies. Now this famous tank is included in the Airfix 1:32nd scale AFV range of kits. Two sets of authentic decals are provided plus a full painting guide. - Taken from the 13th edition catalogue (1976)

Airfix Series (first appearance): 8
