Product Manual

As can be seen in this scale plastic armor model, the M50A1 Ontos was all guns. Six 106mm rifles adorn the top of it, and Academy has accurately reproduced the smaller details that really set this model armor kit apart from earlier versions of it offered by different brands. Detailed assembly is required to position and attach each weapon to its proper location on the Ontos, which also highlights the much improved design of this Ontos model kit. Atop four of the main rifles are 50 caliber spotting rifles that would give off a puff of smoke to indicate whether or not the big guns were on target.

Two Marines are included and require assembly, but they also indicate the somewhat small size of the vehicle compared to the guns on top of it. While one Marine sits safely in the vehicle, the scale Marine figure holding the artillery shell shows the biggest shortfalling of the Ontos, which is having to exit the vehicle to load the rifles. Photo etched brass parts are included for the screens around the muffler and other finer details, while the photo etched parts assembly sheet includes detailed instructions. It identifies how to remove the small brass pieces from their sprue, how to form them into the appropriate shapes, and exactly how to position them on the model. The M50A1 Ontos model kit has a clearly illustrated painting guide for the soldiers and armor model, so the men will look authentic standing next to this tank killer.
