Locust


Because some of the original equipment was replaced or replicated from scratch, you can’t really use this rebuild of an M22 Locust air portable tank as a source of internal reference photos. However, from the outside the rebuilt tank is nearly identical to the original and is used in Second World War re-enactments.

More reference pictures here. 3D model here. Profile here.

But are there any models of it? A 1997 issue of Finescale Modeller has an article about building a model, but it’s not online. Spirit Games do them in 1:300th scale for wargaming. And Commanders Series were thinking about it but shelved the project.
