This model assembly kit recreates the British Army's Archer. As WWII progressed, British troops found that their 2-pounder and 6-pounder guns were being rendered obsolete by German armour, and planners decided to develop a vehicle using the powerful 17-pounder (76.2mm) gun. The vehicle chosen to mount the gun on was the Valentine; the turret was removed and replaced with a fighting compartment – this would be known as the Archer. Interestingly, as there was little time to re-organize the cramped layout, the 17-pounder had to be mounted pointing rearwards to fit it in. As a result, the Archer moved and fired in opposite directions. However, it offered strong performance and served with British and Commonwealth units from October 1944 till the end of WWII. The British continued using it until the early 1950s.
1/35 scale plastic assembly model kit
Length: 191mm
In-depth study of an actual vehicle has led to this accurate depiction of the distinctive Archer form with armour plates and realistic weld lines
The open top fighting compartment showcases numerous other interior features such as the shell racks and radio equipment
Comes with 3 figures to depict commander, gunner and loader
Marking options are included to recreate the 3rd Canadian Infantry Division and Polish II Corps vehicles
