Ooh! Glad someone's having a bash at this, it's on my wish list. I just went to Muckleburgh tank museum last week, and they have a beauty there.


There's a really good build review in Dec 15 Military illustrated Modeller magazine, I don't buy many mags these days, but this one is a goodun, even at £6.50. I'll dig out my pics if you wanna have a gander?

Always liked this vehicle I have the two Corgi versions so will be watching also, if there are any seats left.

I'm looking at this quite seriously now, may I ask how much you got this for? £49.00 is Hannants price - seems bloody steep to me...
John I got it in my local hobby shop sale for £25 as soon as I saw it I just grabbed it off the shelve.

Ah, lucky you, both for the price, and for still having a local hobby shop! Galaxy models in Ipswich closed down a few years ago, I still really miss it - when I was flying RC, it was like a drop-in centre for modellers, often as not, you'd be offered a cuppa as you walked in!

Well I thought it's about time I started this one. I've got some figures to go with it to make it look a little like the box art. Before you all shout "but there from the Second World War " I think that if painted right they should look like the box art figures.
