very well done review. With George Moore doing the masters you can be assured it is as accurate as possible.

Bravo! A review that really goes the extra mile --- and more. I must admit that when I just saw the initial box photo, I wan less than enthralled, but Alan really captured the history of the Morris C9, the fine points of this reproduction, and conveyed a sense of nostalgia for one of the less well-known Steel Warriors of WWII. Reviews like these make regular visits to Armorama a must for serious modelers.

I love the look of these early war armoured cars- big blocky and angular

It'd look great with an 8th Army crew in a Nth African Setting

Thanks for the review Al. I have one question. Is the turret open all the way through? from the parts breakdown it looks like it has some kind of false floor in it but I imagine the real vehicles turret was accessible from inside.

Hi Steve,

That's just a piece of film on the bottom ring of the turret, it is open to the inside, so plenty of interior viewing options

This is the photo the Resicast Crew are based on



I alwasy though this one was a classic



And this one came to light over on ML and is a useful reference for adding the map table.



Cheers

Al
