Discover the features and historical significance of the Rubicon Models A34 Comet tank kit, representing a crucial British cruiser tank from World War II and beyond:

Product Details
Tank Description: The A34 Comet, known as the Tank, Cruiser, Comet I, was designed as an improvement over the Cromwell tank. It featured a new 77mm high-velocity gun mounted in a lower profile, part-cast turret. This gun proved effective against late-war German tanks like the Panther and Tiger at medium ranges.

Historical Significance: Widely regarded as one of the best British tanks of World War II, the Comet played a significant role in the closing stages of the war, particularly during the Invasion of Germany. Its success rendered the Challenger tank obsolete and influenced the development of the Centurion tank.

Variants: The kit offers options to build either the WW2 variant (Type A) or the Post-War variant (Type B) of the Comet tank. This allows modelers to represent different periods of its service history.

Customization Features: Includes parts for open or closed turret hatches, providing flexibility in depicting different operational scenarios. Additionally, options for a standard mantlet or one with a canvas cover add further customization possibilities.

Scale and Material: Designed in 1/56 (28mm) scale, suitable for miniature wargaming and historical modeling. Constructed from ABS plastic, requiring ABS cement for assembly.

Tank Crew Included: Comes with Commonwealth tank crew figures, enhancing the realism and completeness of the model.

Usage and Applications
Modeling Accuracy: Ensures authenticity with detailed representations of turret configurations, gun mantlets, and other distinctive features specific to the Comet tank variants.

Gaming and Collecting: Ideal for tabletop wargaming, offering strategic depth and historical context to gaming scenarios set in World War II and post-war periods. Also appeals to collectors and military history enthusiasts.

Enhance Your Collection
The Rubicon Models A34 Comet tank kit is a valuable addition to any modeler’s collection, providing both educational insight into tank development and combat history, as well as visual appeal in gaming and display contexts.
