    Product Description
    This is a plastic model kit, which comes unassembled and unpainted. So glue, model paints and other basic modelling tools are additionally required.

    Used in Finland during the Continuation War (1941-44), the BT-42 assault gun was something of a hybrid designed to overcome Finland's shortage of AFVs. It mated hulls from captured Soviet BT-7 Model 1937 light tanks with British 4.5-inch howitzers. These QF 4.5-inch Mk.II guns had been donated to Finland when it was fighting Russia during the Winter War (1939-40), and they were fitted in newly designed turrets. They entered service in 1943.

    About the model
    The upper hull, lower hull and turret, for example, are all produced as one-piece components via slide-mold technology. The whole plastic kit is a perfect blend of detail and convenience. This is exemplified by the one-piece DS tracks, which are even detachable just as they were on the original assault gun. Although the novel BT-42 was a desperate Finnish design used in combat during WWII, this kit marks the exciting start of its new modelling career.
