Re: Armorteks next model

I think I could be quite tempted by an El Alamein/ Sicily spec Sherman. My wife's Grandfather, Ron, saw the war through from the defence of France right through to the end of the war in Austria. It would be a fitting tribute to him!

Cheers!

Re: Armorteks next model

For what it's worth (bearing in mind it worked for the Famo contingent) I would be happy to support the calls for an M4a1 as long as it had the 76mm gun. If the76mm Easy Eight really is on the cards, as the survey that was sent out leads me to hope, that would be my first choice. If not, well any ki...

Reference pics- Universal Carrier Mk II National Railway Museum Shildon

Evening everyone, Having succumbed to the lure of owning an Armortek Universal Carrier, I decided to grab some pictures of the Universal Carrier displayed on the War Department Flatbed at the NRM Shildon. This is the carrier that was ex Durham Light Infantry Museum which sadly closed a couple of yea...

Well done to the Universal Carrier team, it's good to see you've got something that you've wanted for some time! As for me, well let's count down till the next announcement! ;)

Re: 31st Jan 2020 - new kit announcement

I was really banking on a Comet or an Easy Eight, so given how bleak my situation is for getting one of those following the clues, I've no idea why I'm so impatient to find out what the releases are. :P

Re: 31st Jan 2020 - new kit announcement

Steel wheel Panthers had problems with tracks. Could a steel wheel Panther being something never offered before by Armortek be classed as new model rather than a re run?

Intrigued of Newcastle.

Re: 31st Jan 2020 - new kit announcement

I'm wondering if perhaps we could have a Churchill or Cromwell on our hands. Airfix have just announced a Cromwell for summer release, their first new tool large armour kit in decades. I'd love to think of two of my favourite companies working together....Armortek does have prior form with the Comet...

Re: Chieftain References

Excellent range of sources there guys. It always interests me how many books and other items are released in the wake of a new Armortek announcement. Now we just need a new 1/6 British cold war tanker figure... I noticed that this book is available to pre order on Amazon for £14.99, not sure how goo...
