Valentine Mk.II / IV

Tamiya, 1/35 scale
by Brett Green


Here is my new Tamiya new 1:35 scale Valentine Mk.II / IV finished straight from the box plus Mini Art's Item No. 35071 British Soldiers Tank Riders. 

I like the poses and the detail of the Mini Art figures, but there was quite a lot of flash and the heads are a bit neanderthal-ish.



The Mini Art set includes four riders and a Tank Commander, but I decided to use the two-man crew provided in the Tamiya kit for a total of six figures. The sculpting of Tamiya's crew figures is really nice, with convincing faces and poses.

The Tamiya kit is very bit as nice as you'd expect, and a very easy build. The tracks are link and length and some of their best yet.



I will be describing construction and painting in detail in Issue 136 of Model Military International magazine.
