Matilda Tank Variants - 20mm scale

Post by Dropbear » Mon Dec 22, 2008 6:43 am

Variant Kits to make Matilda FROG and Dozer variants - 20mm scale
Suggested Tank for kit - Britannia Matilda

Reference - AWI photos, and various books on the Matilda, including the Osprey series.

Tally: Dozer 1
Frog 1

Dropbear: Dozer 1
Frog 1


I found some conversion kits for turning an airfix kit into a Frog and a Dozer. The conversion kits were 10 pound plus from the UK, and that is without postage or the airfix kit.

If enough people want them, It would actually be cheaper to buy them here :D

The Dozer:

I am looking for 1 of each at this stage, possible more.

you might think about a turret, as nearly all Matildas had a differnt cupol than all the commercially avilable,,I would say do a Turret compatible with Britannia, also you need the heavy front track covers, another Australian addition.You can see both these features on the frog

I am happy for a conversion kit type of thing, especially if it keeps costs down. If all it takes for the Frog is a new turret an fuel tank add on for example, then this is the way to go.
