M40A1 106mm Recoilless Rifle - 1/24th Scale (TQ211)
Parts: Resin (21pcs), Metal (11pcs), Etch, Decals, (Contains Instructions)
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 to name a few.
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 also.
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 case 106mm 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.
Images shown how it can be mounted in a vehicle. (These vehicles are not included in the kit.)
