Making a model of a tank of which only ONE example was ever built - thanks for having the guts to do it; I shall be getting one (in a few years when I've cleared my stack!)

Been waiting for this one ever since I saw a line drawing of it a couple of years ago in one of your catalogues. A must have.
One question though. Any idea what exactly were the 1940 mods done to the Independant?
I'd really like to model her in her 1930's form.

Shane,

Thanks for your comments, I think during all her trial years she was fitted with a nice polished (but possibly dummy) 3Pr. gun. This gun mounting was also the other way up. Around 1940 she seemed to aquire a fully working 3Pr and the turret front was changed for the sighting telescope, there also seems to be some evidence of a re-paint in Khaki-Green No-3. Even now I am still finding out things!

As I am back into the early stuff (I am at the moment about 3/4 the way to finishing Mother, oh the rivets ! ) I am very interested , so some close ups would let me know just how big a project it will be and let me time the project into the year

Thanks mate and again mucho cudoso to Accurate Armour for doing such an important development piece.

Many regards

Alasdair

Much appreciated.
I always wanted some of that 20's- 30's British armour like the Vickers Mediums and Carden Lloyd Tankettes.
This will make a hell of a start!

Simply hover over each thumbnail image and Right-Click with your mouse (assuming you use a PC), then 'Save target as...' to wherever you like on your HD - it will save the larger picture that would open if you simply click on the thumbnails. If you do open the thumbnails, you can't actually save the large pictures.

To go by the photos, it's an awesome model of a fantastic subject! Congratulations Accurate Armour!
