Developed from the FV1600 1 ton 4x4 Truck designed by the Humber Motor Car Company in the late 1940’s, the FV1611 was produced as a general purpose troop carrier. The requirement came about due to the high running and purchase costs of the Alvis Saracen. Over 1700 were constructed, and served in all British Army theatres of operation in the 1960’s and 1970’s. Many were modified for internal security duties, and served in N.Ireland …

The CAV 100 (Composite Armoured Vehicle) was introduced in British Army service in 1992 to replace ageing VPK (Vehicle Protection Kit) Land Rovers nicknamed ‘Piglet’. Made by Courtaulds Aerospace, CAV 100 was well liked by crews, being of modular construction using glass fibre plastic formed in three main pieces under very high pressure and mated to the proven 110 Defender chassis and Buick derived V8 petrol engine. CAV 100 gained the name ‘Snatch’ from the nature of operations in Northern Ireland.The vehicle carries a crew of 6 with armoured doors to the side and rear and a roof hatch from where crew can provide cover from behind protective Perspex screens. The protection is from mine/bomb blast and 7.62mm munitions.The benefits of composite armour over the equivalent protection from steel plate are a 20% weight saving without the need for a spall lining and allows for a more benign appearance when compared to other contemporary vehicles.

Although ‘Snatch’ has a high centre of gravity, its handling is a vast improvement on its predecessors.‘Snatch’ was used in the Balkans peacekeeping operations from 1993 to 2011, Iraq and Afghanistan between 2003 and 2014 while undergoing continuous improvements and continues to be used in Northern Ireland albeit in reworked form as vehicles return from the middle east.

Q: Hi are your models build or do you have to build and paint?

A: All the models need to be built and painted, we can however direct you to a modelmaker who can do the job for you if you wish.
