I notice on the Tank Museum webshop some intriguing wooden tank model kits used in their half term “make and take” activities – a WW1 British Tank (Mark IV) and a WW2 Churchill tank.
I had no real idea from the website of their size but I thought they looked jolly robust, so ordered them in support of the Tank Museum.
Like many museums, galleries and charities, it has a had a tough year of restricted income. It has an incredible collection to support and with its tanks and ‘tanker’ stories is an active part of our national Remembrance.
Tempatation: Comes with 10% offer leaflet for sales between Christmas between Christmas and the 31 January 2020.
Quickly assembling them (they have easy dowel construction) to check scale and size, they seem to suit 54mm – 60 mm figures. They are remarkably only £6 each (plus postage).
Compared to the time, effort and skill required to make these in a workshop at home that I don’t have with tools I don’t have, these seem a very good deal to me. A fun kind of charitable giving!
Please note: Last postage dates from the Museum guaranteed in time for Christmas delivery are soon in the next three or four days.
Now these wooden tanks are going back into the family present cupboard for Christmas or a future birthday gift for me.
