Milicast Model Company :: Premiere Range (1/76) :: American :: Fully Tracked Armour - Tanks, SPG's, ARV's , etc., :: T1E1 "Earthworm" Mine Exploder

T1E1 "Earthworm" Mine Exploder
T1E1 "Earthworm" Mine Exploder 
Three sets of rollers, each with six heavy armoured discs, were suspended from the boom of the M32B1 Recovery Tank to produce the mine exploder variant known as the "Earthworm". Weighing 18tons, a limited number of these cumbersome contraptions were built and saw service in the ETO in 1944-45.
Later the more successful T1E3 "Aunt Jemima" mine exploder (see ACC.20 for historical data. Also available as complete unit as kit US114) became available but the "Earthworm" still continued to be used until late in the campaign finishing their service in Germany.

Our model of this unusual AFV is based on the earier, more common, hull type of the M32B1 Recovery Tank also available seperately as kit US61.

The photograph of the diorama above also used Milicast Figures and Accurate Armour Fortress '44 parts was built and painted by Steve Zaloga. This photograph, part of a 10 page article, featured on the cover of the April, 2004 issue of Military Modelling and was, we understand, the first ever small scale resin kit ever to receive this accolade.
