Tamiya 1/35 scale Matilda British infantry tank

Subscriber-only early access review
By Tom Foti
Published: September 1, 2009
Tamiya 1/35 scale Matilda
Tamiya has completely retooled its Matilda tank kit: new track-pattern mold; glueable one-piece tracks and link-and-length tracks; positional hatches; three crewmen; and three different 2-pounder barrels, one tapered, one stepped, and one a 3" howitzer. Markings are provided for three Matildas: two North African campaign tanks in three-color camouflage (one from the 42nd Royal Tank Regiment, 1st Army Tank Brigade, the other from the 32nd Army Tank Brigade); and an England-based tank from the 49th Royal Tank Regiment, 35th Army Tank Brigade. Besides the instruction booklet, a color two-page walkaround is provided.
