Dragon’s M2/M2A1 halftrack has been a sizzling success with modelers. This highly detailed and accurate 1/35 scale kit has now been joined by a companion – an M4 81mm Mortar Carrier. The M4 was a purpose-built variant of the M2 halftrack designed to accommodate an 81mm mortar, ammunition and the mortar crew. A total of 572 M4 halftracks were manufactured before the improved M4A1 appeared. Because much of the rear compartment was taken up with ammunition storage racks and the mortar itself, there was only seating for three crewmen.
