    That is a great surprise and guess what they managed to get the name from somewhere ... that is the same tank from the famous photo with the boys whaling about during the Kings Birthday Ceremony in Valletta!

    Cool tank and much scope for a Malta scene.

    Did anybody see a review about this kit yet?

    How do Miniart kits fair?

    I believe they are good value for money.

    This tank has yet to hit the shelves, probably we shall see it during this month's Nuremberg Toy Fair, normally all major companies await this fair to launch the new releases.

    As for Miniart, personally I like them. The figures and kits are all great, they need some refining here and there but nothing out of this world.

    NB. Valentines were not thick on the island [if not mistaken just less then 5 and all stationed near airfields] and this is the only pictured one, the one that I was wondering what is the name of the vehicle and I can't understand how Miniart got clue! The previous Miniart Valentines have fared well in reviews, some nitpickers commented on the wheels diameter but not that noticable ...

    Will eagerly await this Valentine with 2 man turret!

    OK.... when it's ready for retail, all those interested will make the order... maybe from Lucky Models?
