Recreate the British self-propelled anti-tank gun, Archer, with a Tamiya 1/35 scale model kit.
Design work began in 1942 on the Archer, a self-propelled anti-tank gun intended as a stopgap until a full-time solution could be found. Mounting the gigantic 17 pounder gun on the relatively small Valentine infantry tank chassis was a challenge which the Archer's designers met with an unusual solution - installing the gun back-to-front, with the fighting compartment taking up the front of the vehicle.
Production began in 1944, and Archers were delivered to the British Army's Armoured and Infantry Divisions, who began using it from October.
- Open-top fighting compartment shows off great detail inside, such as shell racks, machine gun and accessories.
- Comes with three figures, which depict commander, gunner and loader in action pose.
- Two marking options are included, offering the chance to recreate 7th Anti-Tank Regiment and 3rd Canadian Infantry Division vehicles.
