The 16th model I completed, built from November 2015 to March 2016, represents a British infantry tank Matilda Mk II, used during the Second World War. It caught my attention mainly due to its unique camouflage pattern.
This post will explain briefly the story of the Matilda II, as it was commonly known the Infantry Tank Mk. II, a British tank of the Second World War. Mainly known for its heavy armour, it fought in France, North Africa, Pacific and in other minor theatres; the Soviets employed them in the Eastern Front, and so did the Germans as war prize.
This is my 15th model, a U.S.-built medium tank M3 Grant used by the British Commnwealth forces. It took a year, from January 2015 to January 2016... but it has been worth it!
With this model of M3 Grant I attempted for the first time to the construction of the interiors of a tank. It is an ugly and graceless vehicle, but nonetheless (or maybe for this reason!) I've always wanted to build one.
The M3 Grant was an U.S.-built medium tank used by the British Army during the Second World War. It had two cannons as main armament, a 75 mm (2.95") gun in casemate mount and a turret-mounted 37 mm (1.46") one.
