Hey all.
It maybe a long shot but has anyone got any cheap tank kits they'd be willing to sell?

Im looking for a number of them as My Step-Son has showed a huge interest in them and I think itd be a good way to build more of a relationship with him.

Thank you in advance.

Have you looked at the Armourfast range? About £8 and you get two kits in one box. Not complicated, but plenty of detail and they look great built

As iggie says, Armourfast are actually aimed at war gamers, but they are good enough as a basic model for learning on, and an experienced modeler can produce a very presentable model.

I will also vouch for the Armourfast series. Good bang for the buck (or pound!) and basic but decent detail.

Yep, Armourfast. Simple assembly too so ideal for a youngster.

All good, Mav. We all do what we can to instill and foster interest in this hobby in the younger generations.
