The Italeri Crusader is pretty decent actually.
Decent for a 1976 model, but we could do with a modern kit.
The point I was making is that we already have very good modern Valentines from at least two manufacturers. It would have been better, in my opinion, if Tamiya had taken the opportunity to do something else.
Reckon they they would sell a lot more Crusaders than they would Valentines.
I'm a big British armour fan, so anything new catche my interest. But I won't be buying the Tamiya Valentine because I already have the AFV Club kit.
Had Tamiya released a Crusader, or a Matilda I or an A9 then I would have been first in the queue to buy one.
