Kit Form Services is a British company that is carving itself out a name producing 1/24th scale military vehicles in resin, it should also be remembered that this company also produces models outside of the military realm and I highly recommend you pay their site a visit. In this news report we take a look at the FV601 Saladin Armoured Car.
