1/24th Scale Classic British Military Vehicles

(& Accessories)

 

 

 

What we are about & why we are producing 1/24th scale military kits instead of 1/35th scale like everyone else;-

After 25 years of producing high quality civilian truck related kits & products, KFS has established a reputation for providing excellent customer service, superb quality products, & affordable prices. In 2009, after a 25 year break from military modelling I decided to persue & produce a line of high quality military kits from my own era of army service. Having considered the so called 'universal scale' of military modelling (1/35th) & having looked at what other companies were producing, I decided that I could offer something bigger, & of a much higher quality, albeit in a more limited range of products.

As we are already very familiar with 1/24th scale, this is where our 'scale loyalty' now lies. The kits we produce are extensively researched & of an extremley high standard in all areas. Master patterns are produced by the UKs very best pattern makers. Casting is undertaken professionally out of house, by the best resin casters in the country. Waterslide decals are produced in traditional high quality silk screen printing. Brass etchwork is carefully designed to be user friendly without the use of special folding widgets & is professionally & expertly produced. The larger scale allows for more fine detail to be incorporated & this translates into detail that can be seen & identified for what it is, rather than just a vague blob of representative resin you might expect on smaller scales.

Best of all there are no moulding blocks to saw off, no air bubbles & no voids to fill due to careless casting. We do not supply kits with broken parts, deformed parts, the wrong parts, missing parts, or parts that don't fit (occasional human error not withstanding). Our photographic & fully explained instructions are the best in the business, & we are always readily available at the end of the telephone or e mail to answer any questions.

In doing so, we now offer a growing range of very high quality Cold War Classic British Military Vehicles & Weapon Systems. We do not seek to change the world, or change the opinions of devout 1/35th scale builders. But if you have not seen one of our kits in the flesh, or better yet actually tried one, then perhaps spare a thought, & treat yourself to something far better than the rest.

TQ-209 120mm L2 BAT / L4 Mobat / L7 Conbat

Developed in the 1950s & deployed through to the 70s, the BAT series of 120mm anti tank weapons were the immediate fore runner to the L6 Wombat (below) & are often incorrectly referred to as 'Wombat'. They are in fact a different weapon system altogether having a drop breach with attached venturi whereas the L6 Wombat has a hinged, sideways opening venturi. Although the 120mm ammunition is the same, the rest of the weapon is completely different.

BAT, Mobat & Conbat were fully towed weapons with a dedicated chassis with independent suspension & 7.50 x 16 wheels & tyres. Whereas, the wheeled carriage on the L6 Wombat could only be used to man handle the weapon into a hide position when dismounted from its portee vehicle, i.e the 1/2 ton & 3/4 ton Land Rover or FV432.

Master Patterns by David Jane

£55.00 GBP (£45.83 outside EU) In Stock

Our 'multi kit' approach for TQ-209 will offer the modeller the option to build either the L2 BAT with its very heavy double layer shield, ...or the lighter, Champ & Land Rover towed L4 Mobat (Modified BAT), which is essentially the same weapon but with the shield removed & a .303" Bren LMG fitted to the left side of the barrel to assist in target ranging..or the L7 Conbat, (Converted BAT) the final version of the series where the LMG ranging gun was replaced by an M8 .50" dedicated spotting rifle mounted on top of the barrel. The kit includes ammo & ammo cases.

 

 

 

TQ-210 120mm L6 Wombat

The United Kingdom's L6 Wombat ( Weapon Of Magnesium Battalion Anti Tank) 120mm recoilless rifle entered service in the 1960s and was used by the British Army in many parts of the world. During the Vietnam War, the Wombat was used by the Australian army. The L6 Wombat 120mm recoilless rifle was 12.66 feet (3.86m) long & required a 3 man crew. Usually, the Wombat was mounted on a mobile small two-wheeled carriage to enable manouvre into a hide position. Although usuallty fired dismounted from the portee vehicle, it could also however be mounted on, & fired from, Army Land Rover vehicles and FV432 APC suitably converted for the role. Contrary to some incorrect reports, Wombat is NOT A VEHICLE TOWED WEAPON. The Wombat had 360 degree traverse and could engage static targets at ranges of 1,093yds (1000m) and moving targets up to 820yds (750m). The 0.5" (12.7mm) M8 spotting rifle mounted over the barrel helped the gunner to engage the target with a first round hit. The Wombat's 4.72" (120mm) calibre HESH round weighed 60lbs (27.2kg) and could penetrate 15.75" (400mm) of armour. The projectile itself weighed 28.3lbs (12.84kg). While the L6 Wombat was a powerful weapon, it created such a huge back blast signature when fired that it was difficult to keep its location hidden after the first round.

TQ-211 M40A1 106mm Recoilless Rifle

An American designed recoilless weapon of the 1950s, widely used throughout the world to this day as a lightweight, vehicle transported, tank killer. There has hardly been a trouble spot in the world in the past half century where this weapon has not been used. Korea, Vietnam, Congo, Somalia, Falklands, Iraq, Libya, Syria,....

Our kit is designed to be a conversion kit for the FV1801 Austin Champ & as such comes with etched conversion parts & instructions for that task. However, because the two rear legs of the tripod are width adjustable, the kit will also easily fit most 1/24th scale Jeep kits, the KFS Lightweight Airportable, the Italeri 3 Series Land Rover kit & most open backed civilian pick ups. The model is demountable from the carrying vehicle & comes with the standard monowheel tripod carriage. The model has barrel traverse & elevation & comes with a total of 8 rounds of the unique perforated case106mm ammo. 4 Rounds of HESH & 4 Rounds of HEAT plus an ammo rack for Champ use. The ammunition for this kit has been specially CAD drawn & rapid prototyped & has the correct number & size of perforations in each shell case.

TQ-225 English Electric Thunderbird Mk2 SAGM

The English Electric Thunderbird surface to air guided missile was adopted by the British army in 1959 as a highly mobile air defence weapon & served until 1977 before the last battery was re-equipped with the Rapier system. It ran for many years in direct competition with the similar looking Bloodhound system that was developed by Bristol & ordered for the RAF. At battery strength, the 4 missile transporter/launcher trailers (which were connverted Bofors 40/70 carriage) would be towed by Bedford RL prime movers. The battery also consisted of AEC Militant prime movers & 6 generator trailers for power & hydraulics, 2 radar trailers & 4 missile re-supply trailers. The launcher could be re-loaded with another missile, complete with launcher cradle, from the re-supply trailer, (middle pictures below) without the aid of a crane. The black & white photograph (3rd from left) shows a missile & cradle turned through 90 degrees & being manhandled onto the launcher from the re-supply trailer.
