Recreate the U.S. Howitzer Motor Carriage M8 with a Tamiya 1/35 scale model kit. 

The M8 was the first self-propelled howitzer to equip the U.S. Army during WWII. It combined the hull of an M5 light tank with an open-top turret which was armed with a short-barreled 75mm howitzer and a 12.7mm machine gun. The howitzer was capable of firing high-explosive, anti-tank, and smoke rounds up to a range of 8,800m. The vehicle was officially accepted in May 1942 and 1,800 examples were built from September of that year until January 1944. They were deployed starting from mid-1943 and they used their armament and mobility to good effect in the fire-support role in the Italian, Western European, and Pacific Theaters. After WWII, French forces also used the vehicle during the conflict in Indochina.


  • Open top turret, howitzer, and overall form reproduced in rich detail.
  • Accurately depicted suspension mechanisms.
  • Commander, gunner, and loader figures included to enable creation of a simple diorama straight from the box.
  • Comes with 3 types of markings.

Great little kit

Great little kit, ideal for a small diorama. Retooled I believe, and great value for money.

Tamiya M8 Howitzer

Although some of these older kits have been on the market for some time they make up into great kits. Good for younger modellers. The prices are good too.

Great fun

Bought as good value for the price.
