This is an injection-plastic military vehicle model kit.
The Comet appeared at the end of World War II as a British tank that could compete with powerful German tanks such as the Tiger and Panther. The basic structure of the hull is based on the Cromwell, a conventional main battle tank, and the main gun is equipped with a Q.F. The turret has also been enlarged to match the new main gun, giving it a more modern look. The Comet made its first appearance in the Rhine Crossing Operation in March 1945; it struggled mainly to support infantry, fully demonstrating the power of its 77mm cannon. The well-balanced performance of attack power, mobility, and defense power was highly appreciated by the crew and infantry.
This model kit from Tamiya, based on research on the actual vehicle, realistically reproduces its fearless style with a long 77mm gun on a flat body! The hull and front of the turret have a realistic cast feel; the canvas mantlet cover is also a highlight. The tracks are articulated with straight sections; the Normandy cowl duct at the rear of the hull can be built as the left and right integrated type, or the separate type. The searchlight lens on the side of the turret is made with clear parts. The front part of the hull is equipped with a front machine gun, driver visor, headlights and more; external equipment such as scoops and crowbars are also included, as are a helmet and gas mask case. Two half-length figures of the crew in winter uniforms and decals for two versions are also included. Place your order today!
