During the 1930's and in the Second World War, the American Marmon-Herrington company produced various armoured cars and light tanks for the US Marines and various foreign armies. The main customer of the CTLS series was the Dutch government, which intended to use it in Indonesia, then a Durch colony. When, after the Pearl Harbour attack, the Dutch East Indies were overrun by the Japanese, only a small number of CTLS tanks were already in place. The others produced were taken over by the US Marines as the T14 and T16, who deployed them in Alaska, and by the Australian army.
The CTLS was produced in two versions, the CTLS-TAY / T-16 with the turret on the left and the driver on the right and the CTLS-TAC/T-14 with the positions reversed. These were designed for countries with traffic on the left or right side of the roads. But in the urgency and confusion of the early Pacific War, both versions were distributed haphazardly, often ending up in the same unit.

This item is simply an upscaled version of my 1/300 model, only the machine gun barrels have been added. Fine parts cannot be 3D-printed , so the machine guns on the turret and hull are overscale.
When I first uploaded this model, it was not scaled correctly and too small. I corrected the error 3rd August evening (European time)
