been a long time coming, but we
can now release the M23 Ammunition Trailer for the 240mm Howitzer. The
kit was mastered by Neil Craig with wheels by Stuart Harrison and comes
with an optional tilt and load of 240mm shells and charges. As you can
see from the pictures below, when paired behind the Mack N0 or M6 High
Speed Tractor, these will a different and interesting model. The kit
also has huge diorama possibilities perhaps being unloaded beside a
Howitzer set up for firing (US143) and the Ammunition set (ACC048). We
look forward to seeing pictures of your finished models.

was very much a year of tanks for us here at Milicast, so I am
delighted to announce that we kicked off 2021 with the release of three
new ambulance kits.
All three kits have a fully detailed interior separate stretchers and alternative parts. Left to right, they are:
Bedford ML Heavy Ambulance
of very well-made MLs (converted from other kits) were posted on
Facebook last year which prompted some customers to ask us to produce a
complete kit. At first glance it looks very similar to the Austin K2,
but from the cab forward, it is completely different and a lot of work
went into the master.
Product Code: UK379
Austin K2/Y Ambulance
couldn't do the Bedford ML without also doing the Austin K2/Y -
possibly the most famous British Ambulance of WWII. The kit features
high levels of detail including optional parts to allow the rear step
to be constructed either in a folded or fully open position as shown
Product Code: UK378
We are big fans of the classic British war film Ice Cold in Alex.
This kit is our homage to Katy - the Austin K2/Y ambulance featured in
the film. In order to accommodate filming, a specially built vehicle
was used with the 4x4 drivetrain from a CMP truck. We have incorporated
this and the many other features of this iconic vehicle.
Product Code: MV001
