Meng Models – 1/35 Scale – Tyrannosaurus Series – A39 Tortoise British Heavy Assault Tank Plastic Model Kit
In late WWII, UK developed a huge monster as heavy as 79 tons—the British A39 Tortoise Heavy Assault Tank to strike German solid fortifications. It was designed with a fixed fighting compartment and extremely thick armor. The heavy hull was supported by a torsion bar suspension system. Its incredibly powerful 94mm Gun could fire at any ground target. The Tank had an additional fully rotatable turret to strengthen firepower, while a 7.92mm MG in the front was used to shoot infantrymen. As the tank was still in its trial stage when the project was terminated following the end of war, there were only 6 vehicles produced.
The 1:35 scale plastic model of the British A39 Tortoise Heavy Assault Tank is 293mm in total length and 111mm in width. Its huge general shape is accurately reproduced, and the large area of casting texture and weld seam details of the fighting compartment greatly increase sense of reality. The 94mm long barrel gun can turn like in the real tank and the solid gun mantlet is accurately reproduced. The travel lock can lock the gun like a real one.
