Hi Gary,

Thank you very much for your good wishes. It will be at the end of this year that I will work with Tom Cole, the current editor, to learn what needs to be done to take over as Tankette editor for 2018, as it goes into its' 53rd year. In case there are any others still unfamiliar with it, Tankette is the magazine for the members of MAFVA, published 6 times a year. I was honoured to be asked to take it on and am really looking forward to it.thumbs up

Hi Andy,

Having seen for myself how much work you put into the project (as well as the external trenches) I am really sad to hear the project has been scuppered, it was coming along so well. All the best to you and Russ along with your helpers for all the work you put in. beer

The Morris C8 with 25pounder is included in their new catalogue for this year, but not the CS8.

With reference to the Tracked Rapier, unfortunately this is not a plastic kit from AFV Club, but a resin kit in their Hobby Fan range I understand. smile p

Hi Dave,

As a fan of all truck kits, these look good, thanks for sharing.thumbs up

I also see that Riich Models are venturing into 1/72 armour and have announced both the M109A2 and the M109A6 Paladin. Only box art but nice to see them venture into the smaller scale. smile p

Thread: British A9 and A10 Cruiser Tanks - new models announced

Hi Paul,

Yes, one of these would be good to go with the Scammell Transporter. thumbs up

Hi Steve,

Yes, both Gecko and Bronco have announced an A10, though they are different kits. As per my news (see link above) I understand the Gecko kit is a 100% new tooling, and will include interior detail as well as a crew figure, though as already mentioned, we have yet to see any plastic as it isn't due to be on sale until summer as I understand. thumbs up

Hi Alan,

The first two armour kits plus the figure were indeed announced about a month ago, the news today is of two more tank kits, bringing the total to 4 now. thumbs up

Hi Gaz,

I haven't seen the IBG kit but lots of room for differences it seems. You might be interested to see this photo showing a line of 4 (2 petrol engines and 2 later diesels) and plenty of differences to see. This was taken at the main REME museum collection at Borden back in 2008

Last year my mum celebrated her 100th birthday. Today, at the age of 100 years and 8 months, my mum passed away peacefully. She had a remarkable and long life, being born when the Battle of the Somme was just 1 month old. Now however, she is finally at peace. God bless her.rose

One I have been working on sits quite nicely under the banner for this group, the Patriot launcher from Dragon. Built so far, so paint next when I can decide which scheme to go for (desert sand or European camo)
