27th October 2016

S&M Models are delighted to announce what we believe to be the first ever full injection moulded kit of the Alvis Stalwart in any scale.  The kit will be in three issues.  A Mk.1 General Service Vehicle, a Mk.2 General Service Vehicle and a Mk.2 Royal Artillery Limber Vehicle. We hope the kit will be available before the end of 2016.

Thanks for that,

 

Must decide between 1/76 or 1/72.

Prefer a little bit the last.

But I'm sure there comes more, a Saracen is in the pipeline too.

 

Hope for the Saladin and Salamander

There's a resin one in 1/35 if you can afford a second mortgage.

Amazing, you wait years for an injection moulded Stolly and 2 come along at the same time. I bet S&M aren't too chuffed ... you would have thought a small scale Stolly would have been a niche subject. But at least they're (just about) different scales.

 

35th is my preferred scale (injection moulded 35th to be more precise) but I'll happily downscale for this subject.

German Army?

 

Never heard that they have it in service, there are only two (!!!) for testing

I checked the situation.

 

Yes, German Army tested (!!!) two Stalvart. 

But the camouflage is totaly wrong!

The Stalwarts are not camouflaged and not marked, the picture at Wikipedia show replicas from former BAOR Stalwarts.

Nice to see they are modelling 09ER48 from 33 Squadron RCT I was the very first person to drive this Stalwart in 1968 at Bunde when it had zero mileage on the clock, I used it for 2 years until being transfered to 3 Squadron in Singapore.

Having recently purchased an S&M Stalwart, very dissapointed with the build, very basic and lots missing from the kit.....no suspension shock obsorbers on front wishbone, no winch ropes and decals not for a Mark 2 in service.........1 for a Mk1 and 2 with civvy regestrations..........I have built the all resin Accurate Armour Stalwart and the Firing Line(Dartmoor Models)..........both turn out well with lots of patience and hard work.

Nice to see ACE making something that resembles a mark 2  Stalwart

I caught a review somewhere on the web saying that the S&M kit was also too short, (that last phrase sounds very dodgy) so I'm holding out the for Ace kit

Beg to differ, the Bundeswehr scheme is correct, even though there were only 2 x vehicles Mark 2s  tested(one with Atlas crane - the other without.  The trials vehicles did get painted in RAL 6014 gelboliv and did have Y-license plates with a red "Y" and digits.  see here:-

 

https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=alvis+stalwart+bundeswehr&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjFz7DsusfUAhVKIcAKHf4DDZQ4ChD8BQgGKAE&biw=1280&bih=918&dpr=1

 

A prototype vehicle PV14 was sent to Germany for evaluation.  It was registered Y-04222  and 2 x new Mk2 vehicles followed it.The German Army at first ordered 100 vehicles, but, in the event, none were delivered as the bundeswehr opted for the American replacement for the DUKW and LARC

Yes and no.

Bundeswehr vehicles in action (ISAF etc. have the iron cross, rhe tested Stalvarts had that never!

Okay, rhese two replicas exist, but for me it's not as choice to made one of these.

I prefer a BAOR version, hope for the other versions and (much more) for the Salamander.
