Morning all

I,m part way through this build and noticed there is no mention in the instructions of the external fuel tank which was on the British model. The parts are on the sprue but not used. My question is did the Matildas sent to Russia not have this external fuel tank fitted. I've looked on the web and all the photos of Russian Matildas don't seem to show the fuel tank fitted. Any advice would be welcome.

Morning Chris.

I think they probably didn't have them. A lot of Matildas in the desert didn't either.

If you type Matilda II in the search bar you'll find a thread started by Paul C. where this is gone into.

Thanks Jon

The more research I do the fewer Matildas with the external tank I find so I,ll leave it of and put the parts in the spares box.
