World’s leading manufacturer of 1:6 scale metal model kits launches two new limited-edition tank models.

Winchester, UK. 17th September 2018: Armortek (, the world’s leading manufacturer of 1:6 scale metal model kits announces the launch of their latest products – the iconic M3 Lee/Grant medium tanks.

M3 Medium Tank trials

Used by the Americans, British, Australians, Indians and the Russians during World War II, the M3 medium tank was most effective in matching and even beating the German firepower in the North African campaign and was a vital “stop-gap” until the M4 Sherman tanks made their debut.

In keeping with previous Armortek releases, the Armortek M3 Lee and Grant medium tank kits are a result of detailed research and measurements of a full-scale vehicle. Made predominantly from CNC machined aluminium and steel, the kits feature scale thickness armour, prototypical suspension and can be remote control enabled.

Containing over 2,600 parts (with more than 200 unique components) plus a couple of thousand fasteners, the M3 medium tank kit will take about 200 hours to build.

The M3 Lee/ Grant from Armortek measures 94cm (37”) long and 44cm (17”) wide and stands 48cm (19”) tall. They will weigh approximately 80kg (180 lbs) in their remote-controlled configuration.

The M3 Lee and M3 Grant will be available for delivery in Spring 2019 and will cost £3,295 excluding VAT and P&P.
