The Alvis Stalwart is a true legend among all terrain vehicle enthusiasts. This unique 6x6 swimming vehicle was designed as a high capacity 5 Ton High Mobility Load Carrier (HMLC), and saw extensive service over several decades in all theatres of operation with the British Army. It is true to say that this was one of the best designed vehicles (from any nation) of the post war era, and one of the most popular and well loved vehicles on the vehicle rally circuit today.
British Army UBRE (Unit Bulk Refuelling Equipment) was introduced in 1975 and is generally used for fast combat refuelling of all vehicles but in particular the larger armoured MBT’s and APC’s of the British Army.
This 1/35th scale Resin model by Jon Bottomley and Rob Tearle depicts the FV622 Mk-2 version fitted with UBRE. The model features full suspension, accurate tyres with subtle bulging, cab internal details, extensive etched brass detail set and full colour decals. Also included are scale thickness laser cut headlamp guards. The UBRE equipment comprises resin castings, etched brass details, full colour decals and vehicle hazard warning plates. Other materials such as rubber chord and wire are also included along with full colour instructions.
The set can be completed as stowed for transport or deployed for fuelling. We also make opening fuel cover sets for most British armoured vehicles and operator figures, details of which are shown below.
