Cruiser tank A9 Mk1 CS model from Gecko Models

The A9 Mk1 CS was a modification to the original A9 tank.  The A9 had a good anti-tank gun but it lacked the capability to fire HE or smoke rounds.  The solution was to convert a small number of tanks to mount the 3.7 inch (94mm) howitzer.  While mechanically reliable it suffered the same shortcomings in amour thickness & with its sub turrets as the A9 & was withdrawn from service in 1942.

Gecko, who are a relatively new name in the modelling hobby have reproduced this vehicle in 1/35 scale from plastic with a small photo etch fret.  It captures the riveted look of this vehicle & also includes internal detail for the drivers & fighting compartment.  Either the standard or desert version of this tank can be made with 6 marking options for vehicles used in France or North Africa.
