Carro Armato M 13/40 with Australian markings
1:72 scale plastic model kit
The M 13/40 medium tank entered service with the Royal Italian Army in 1940, replacing previous versions judged to have inferior armament and armour compared with British tanks encountered in North Africa. Its 47 mm cannon was, however, still inadequate against Allied armour. This model kit, part of a limited edition series, includes decals for an M 13/40 captured by Australian forces at Bardia and used by the 6th Australian Cavalry Regiment in Libya.
Measures 6.8 cm long when complete. Glue and paints not included. Suitable for modellers aged 14 upwards.
