The M16 was primarily used in the Anti-Aircraft role, but was sometimes used against enemy infantry, hence its nickname, the 'Meat Chopper'. I love this model, it's got lots of small details, especially its powertrain, which includes its engine, gearbox, driveshaft, differential and exhaust. I also like the fact that Tamiya included extra details like the crewmen's personal weapons, backpacks, water bottles and blankets! Nice one Tamiya!

I did, however, make a major mistake with this model. I used Humbrol's Olive Drab, (I forget the paint number, as I have since thrown it out) which is too light. I should have used Tamiya's Olive Drab XF62, it's almost exactly the right shade of Olive Drab for U.S. Army WW2 vehicles.
