Description

This is an injection-plastic military vehicle model kit.


The Daimler armored vehicle was developed based on the Daimler reconnaissance vehicle. The Daimler reconnaissance vehicle is a small, lightweight vehicle; the Daimler armored vehicle is a larger version of this, equipped with a Tetrarch tank two-pound gun turret. As a reconnaissance vehicle, it incorporated some of the most advanced designs of its time, and became one of Britain's best armored fighting vehicles during World War II. A prototype vehicle was produced in 1939; however, problems with the transmission due to its weight delayed its service until mid-1941. A total of 2,964 of this vehicle were manufactured by Daimler. Daimler armored vehicles have fully independent suspension and four-wheel drive. The planetary gear transmission inside the axle allows for very low gear ratios in the lowest gear. Its reliability over rough terrain made it ideal for reconnaissance and escort missions. In the Mk.II, a pilot escape hatch was added to the top of the cockpit, the shape of the radiator grille was changed, and the electrical system was improved. The turret mantlet was replaced with that of the Harry Hopkins light tank, an improved version of the Tetrarch light tank. 

This model kit from IBG includes the changed mantlet, as well as a flare gun that was added after the war. A hatch has been added directly above the drivers seat, and the shape of the radiator grille at the rear of the vehicle has been changed. Order yours today!
