Fully-Tracked Armour - Tanks, SPGs, ARVs, etc.

  • Cruiser Tank A9

    Accepted into service in 1937, the A9 was the first of the Cruiser tank series with 125 built by both Vickers and Harland & Wolf of Belfast. It was armed with a 2 pdr. gun and 3x .303 MG's and had a crew of six. A Close Support (CS) variant with a 3.7" Howitzer was also produced. Used by the 1st Armd. Division in France in 1940, they also saw action in the Western Desert. Of the 35 sent to France, six A9's and a further eighteen A9CS (Close Support) variants were lost in action. In the Western Desert, in action against the Italians from June 1940, they were quite successful but their limitations were again exposed by the arrival of the German armour and were withdrawn from front line action in November 1941. This was a particularly complex vehicle with many interesting facets. Of particular note is the intricate rivet detail. There are over 1200 rivets on the hull and turrets, each one painstakingly replicated here and put there individually by hand! Illustrated model painted by Dan Taylor and using DTM transfers.

  • Churchill Armoured Recovery Vehicle Mk.I

    Following the success of the Grant ARV, it was decided to utilize unit vehicles as ARVs.

    From February 1942, Churchill Mk.I and Mk.IIs were converted into ARVs. The turret was replaced with a shallow cylindrical structure and an anti-aircraft mount with twin Bren .303 light machine guns.

    During recovery operations, an A-frame jib was mounted on the front, supported by a length of high-tensile cable affixed to the hull behind the forward hatches. As there was no powered winch, a manually-operated block and tackle or chain hoist was fitted to the jib.

    They saw service in Tunisia, Sicily & Italy before being replaced in mid-1944 by the custom built Mk.II version.

    Please note: The chain seen on out prototype model is available separately from our Accessories Range (SKU: ACC106).

  • Churchill Crocodile Flamethrower Tank & Trailer

    This model depicts the famous flame thrower tank using converted Churchill Mk.VII hulls with an armoured trailer, weighing 4.5tons and containing 400 gallons of Napalm. It was connected via an articulated connector pipe to the hull of a converted Churchill Mk.VII. The trailer was jettisoned after the fuel was exhausted, to be retrieved later by a light truck. The two bars seen on the sides of the trailer were removed and used for manhandling the empty trailer into position for towing. The Churchill then proceeded as a normal gun tank. 

    A total of 800 were built and used extensively in NW Europe where they were in constant demand and were often seconded to give assistance to the Americans. Four Sherman M4s were also converted to tow this trailer. They Churchill Crocodiles also saw combat in the Korean War. 

    Containing separate parts for the tank hull, including the flame gun, adaptor plate, articulated connector, travel lock, armoured fuel pipe, the trailer can be modelled separately or being towed. Both the WWII and the Korean versions can be built.

  • Sherman Mk.V DD Tank (M4A4) - "De-Frocked"

    This model represents the Sherman Mk. V Duplex Drive tank some time after the Normandy landings when there has been time to remove the propellers and the canvas surround. Photographic evidence confirms that after this initial field maintenance, the metal apron surround was usually retained until these vehicles could be then be returned to the REME workshops for full maintenance and repair. Resultantly the apron wells were filled with all sorts of acquired stowage, and we supply a selection of both British & German fuel cans, crates, ammunition boxes, tarpaulins, etc., to stow the vehicle according to your own references. Replacement brass turned barrel available as BAR075S.
