Dear fellow Britmodellers,

this is the brand-new 1/72 Vespid Models A34 Comet tank, in markings of 3rd Royal Tank Regiment, 29th Armoured Brigade, 11th Armoured Division (from the box).

I added a towing cable from my spares box and antenna on the turret.

The model was painted with Gunze/Mr.Hobby acrylics, weathering with artist's oils and pastel chalks.

For the first time, the A34 is available as an injection-moulded kit in 1/72.

I had never heard of Vespid Models before, and was pleasantly surprised by the quality and fit of parts.

Even the link & length tracks, which often cause me troubles, were relatively easy to assemble.

My boxing contained a metal gun barrel and photo-etch parts.

Thank you, I took a lot of inspiration for weathering and fading from your builds.

I have one of these part built - really must get around to finishing it as it's a stunning kit.

 

You've made a fantastic job of it - Well Done!!!

Looks very nice, although not an armour modeller I really fancy one as it is my favourite tank and looks miles better than the Matchbox kit I built many years ago at Uni.

Very nice looking Comet, Roman! Good to see it build, as I was very curious what it would be like ever since it was first announced. I will now have to get one myself 🙂
