New Release!

It's 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.

Please click on the pictures below for information on uses of the trailer with other ammunition types and tow vehicles.

The predecessor to the more numerous SV2, Scammell SV1 Heavy Recovery was considered too difficult to operate in the field and most were abandoned as the BEF retreated to Dunkirk. The kit has 142 parts, including optional parts to build the doors open or closed, engine visible, etc.

As we continue to expand our range of Cold War era kits, I am pleased to announce the release of the Chieftain Mk.5 in our Premiere Range. The kit is available now.

Product Code: UK380

 

2020 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

Pictures 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

We 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 here.

Product Code: UK378

"Katy"

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
