A preview of this new-tool kit from Tamiya, the WWII era Valentine Mark II/IV British Infantry Tank Mark III. It has all the marks.

Very nice looking, thanks for this Jim. My poor wallet is going to hate me, this is a must have.

Looks great! Going to have to see about expanding the stash bit, I guess.

Massive fan of British armour but a little disappointed by this.

It does look a nice kit but we are already well served by AFV-Club and Mini Art.

It would have been nice to see some of the more unusual types that haven't be covered elsewhere - Matilda I or an A9 but I can understand why Tamiya might have thought them a bit risky.

But there is one glaring omission that is dying out for a decent model - the A15 Crusader.

Apart from the very old Italeri offerings this tank has been pretty much ignored in 1:35.

Tamiya do a nice one in 1:48 so if I had known a 1:35 British Tank was coming I would have guessed a Crusader.

But would never have guessed the Valentine - nice as the model is it is already covered more than well enough.
