Skulking in the same box as the Morris and Rolls-Royce armoured cars, and completed at around the same time is my 1940 British Armoured Brigade. In the early 1990s I picked up a number of early cruiser tanks made by Black Star Models. Most are destined for service in North Africa, but I decided to build a Brigade for use in Europe in 1940. I am still impressed at my restraint in not building the whole of 1st Armoured Division, but then the real one was never fully deployed.
A9 Cruiser. This is a particular favourite of mine as it is so obviously past it's best by 1940. Two MG turrets - what were they thinking?
|A13 Mk1. These were ridiculously fast. When they worked.|
Vickers MkVI light tank. This is a metal kit by RAFM - who did a small but very useful range - are they still available?
|The whole of the mighty brigade assembled for action.|
