Now all we need is a newly moulded one in 1/35 scale by AFV Club or DML both the 2lber and the 3in CS.

Hi Tomas,

I have seen several on evil-bay over the past few months. Keep looking, they pop up. Unfortunately, this is my only copy, and it REALLY wants me to build it!

Regards,

Fred

I don't have the Matilda, but I do have the Fuman re-pop of the Valentine. Nice kit.

I have one, too. It is built but not by my hand, so I have not shown it. But I can post some pix if you'd like.
