Truly excellent. What details were added? And what do you do with all of these tanks and other models that you build?

Excellent work.

This particular vehicle, representing all that was wrong with British early war tanks is a masterpiece of modelling and painting in my opinion.

You can almost hear it clanking along!

Best wishes,

There are three kits in the box. This is the second one, which I tried to build as different as possible from the first, inspired by this picture: Image

Tanks are not really my thing.
But yours look really good.
And the pictures are great, too.
Good work. :thumbup:

Nice that PSC do a A9 cruiser tank.
Well done huib. With all the small additions, lamps. :yeah:
And tankers in or on top of a tank is always good.
An A9 is also on my to do list. One in Greece jumps in my head around.

Fabulous painting on both of these tanks and the photos are excellent; I had to remind myself that the real one was in black and white.
