I did say recently that from now on unless there was no alternative I was only going to buy new generation Airfix or Tamiya and now I know why, my Tamiya Valentine tank has turned up from e-bay land and I literally cannot wait to get at it, the boxing and artwork are amazing, the moulding of the five tan coloured sprues is crisp and finely detailed and the instruction sheet is of the usual high Tamiya standard.
I wasn’t sure if this kit was the correct Mk for this conflict but it turns out the differences between the earlier Mk no’s was all in the engines ,externally they all appeared the same, some did have the 6lb gun but they served at the same time so all’s well.
I will post pictures as I progress,Cheers N.
