British Tank Vickers Mk II In 1/72 and 1/48 Scales - by Alberto Perilli / Landships

In the Landships website you will find these cool models in two versions, normal and camo of the Vickers Mk II. Look for Alberto Perilli to go directly to these models and take a look at the site for much more military vehicles.

The Vickers Medium Mark II was a British tank built by Vickers in the Inter-war period. The Medium Mark II, derived from the Vickers Medium Mark I, was developed to replace the last of the Medium Mark Cs still in use. Production and rebuilding ran from 1925 until 1934. The tank was phased out of service from 1939, replaced by the Cruiser Mk I. It featured several improvements over the Vickers Mark I : a higher superstructure with the driver's vizor on top of it instead of in front of it; an improved suspension protected by armour skirts; and Rackham clutches, providing a primitive form of mechanical servo-control. Due to a slightly higher weight its rated speed was somewhat slower than that of the Medium Mark I, at 13 mph compared to 15 mph. - Wikipedia
