On Sale - Normal availability | �Permalink to A004
A complete 1/35th scale resin cast kit of the WW-II standard No-2 Mk-1 tank ammunition sledge as fitted to Sherman, Churchill, Cromwell, and most well known to Centaur, master patterns by Derek Hansen.
Porpoise was issued to tank units for beach landings and river crossings, and was issued in large numbers on D-day, and all Royal Marines Armoured Support Group (RMASG) Centaur tanks towed them. The sledge actually floats behind the tank when in deep water, and the ammunition is stored in four water-tight compartments. Model and pictures by John Murphy.
