The 3 kits are packed in a big (23 x 15,5 x 7,5 cm) carton box.

It contains 6 sprues for 3x 1/72 British A9 Cruiser tanks, suitable for the early campaigns in France 1940 through to the desert campaigns in North Africa. Also present are tank commanders for both campaigns (see picture below right). Decals however are not included.

My opinion, after looking at the parts is, that the kit isn't as sharp and detailed as the sModel kits, but it's, until now, by far the best A9 kit we have in the 1/72 scale. The casting is correct. There are no sinkholes, flash, injection or pressing marks on the wrong sides of the parts.

The sprue with the desert hull (sandshields)

The sprue with the France hull (without sandshields)  

My conclusion is that the model has the correct dimensions for this scale.





The finished model


It's really an ideal kit for modellers that like British vehicles and those with enough experience to bring the model to a higher class.

The pictures of the build model come from Geoff Baines and appeared on the modelling forum “Missing Lynx”.


This model can be purchased from Tracks & Troops
