Tamiya's 1/35 scale kit converted

Description

 


This is my Model of a Matilda Mk.III in Australian service. It is essentially the Tamiya kit with a re-shaped turret front Glacis plate and lots of other scratch made details to the base kit.

The only aftermarket parts used were the spud tracks and a Jordi Rubio Barrel.

Decals are largely from HardCorps models with others being from letter sheets.

 

 

I loved doing this tank and it has sparked my enthusiasm for modelling lots of other Australian subjects.

Thanks to my Mate Michael Grieve for giving me great help with this vehicle and as always Jay Laverty.
