WELCOME TO ARMORTEK

Armortek is the world’s leading manufacturer of 1/6th scale model kits.

For over 10 years Armortek have been manufacturing and supplying kits from our base in the UK to enthusiasts across the world.

Each model is extensively researched using a variety of historical sources, and our close working relationship with the world renowned Tank Museum at Bovington in the UK provides an excellent resource to many original vehicles.

We pride ourselves on our quality and customer service. Armortek tanks have featured in movies, been used by the British Army and have a place in the Guinness book of World Record for the largest gathering of 1/6th scale tanks.

We sell kits under two brand names – Armortek® and Kompact Kits®. Scroll down to read more.
