Modeling the Sherman Tank in 1/72nd Scale
Medium Tank Lee Mk I Mirage
Kit #72802
Article by Doug Chaltry; last updated 30 September 2016
This kit represents the M3 Lee Mk I as used in British service. The kit is essentially the same as the standard M3 General Lee kit (#72801), but with the inclusion of new decals, as well as the Grant turret sprue, because that sprue contains the sand skirts that are needed for this British version of the Lee. I refer the modeler to that earlier kit review for general comments about the parts shared between these kits.

Diverse markings are included for two Canadian Lees in the United Kingdom, and three British Lees in North Africa and Burma.

Thank you to Michael Hatch for donating this review kit.
