Valentine Mk II - 1st Northamptonshire Yeomanry

  • move
Introduction


This is my representation of the Infantry Tank Mk III, Valentine Mk II built from the MiniArt Valentine Mk IV 35092 kit. It is finished as a training tank from Headquarters Squadron, 1st Northamptonshire Yeomanry, 20th Armoured Brigade, 6th Armoured Division, in the UK between October1940 and April 1942.

I built the kit as part of a Review Blog which you can link to here Valentine Blog

I added some additional detail to the build for fun but, I haven't decided on a final setting so the turret still needs joined to the hull and final weathering is not yet complete.

The figuers are from Hornet and Resicast and the base is a generic one form the SB Scotia range by SB Models.
