Italeri Crusader Mk.I 1:35 Scale Plastic Model Tank Kit (6432)
The Crusader Mk. I tank, produced in a range of versions, equipped front-line British armoured divisions up until about half-way through the Second World War; it saw action on the Western Front and in Africa and Asia. Its thin armour was often inadequate in the face of enemy fire, and it was particularly vulnerable to mines and anti-tank gunfire. Firepower was often decidedly inferior compared to that of its German counterparts. Nevertheless the Crusaders, when properly coordinated in groups, often obtained good results, especially in Africa.
