Our kits are designed in-house and manufactured at our site in Hampshire in the UK. We have state of the art CNC machines on which we machine the components in our kits.
Our kits are predominantly made out of metal - with the obvious exception of components like rubber tyres and canvas roofs. We use mainly aluminium. In general, steel is used for some drive components and thin sheet metal, whilst brass is used for some bushes and decorative components.
We predominately sell kits for our customers to build themselves. However, we do offer a service to build and paint the model. We have limited capacity to offer this service - if you are interested, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. This service cannot be ordered through our website.
Our kits tend to be produced in batches of limited numbers - typically less than 100 kits - hence they are Limited Edition. Each kit* comes with a certificate to indicate its serial number and certify its authenticity. Historically Limited Edition runs of the same model have been run between 3 to 8 years [...]
At any one time we only have a small range of kits for sale. If a model is not listed on our site, the chances are it is not available for sale
Unfortunately not. Due to the economics of research, design and production, a one-off kit would cost many times the cost of a standard model.
We do have a small display area at our manufacturing facility, however, due to the ongoing pandemic and the risk to our staff, no visitors are allowed at our premesis until further notice.
Armortek kits vary in weight and it is best to check the product pages to get an estimate of the weight. However, a couple of examples: Elefant (Basic kit with no options added) - approx 90kg Tiger 131 (All options and batteries included) - approx 130kg
No. We have specialised in 1/6th scale metal models and do not currently produce any other scales.
