I think that your great SCW range needs more vehicles.

One important vehicle is the UNL 35. The only one armoured car produced in some quantity during the war, and used by the Spanish Army after the conflict.
A very popular tank, although not very used in the conflict is the Trubia-Naval tank, better known as the Toy Tank by the British Fans, or the Euskadi tank. It was produced in a small quantity, and only fought in the north front with the Vasque Army, but it was so... strange, that it´s very popular in magazines and books about the conflict.
There are also a lot of home made armoured trucks, and armoured trains, but I think that those two are the most interesting for the range.

Thanks for the suggestions, I think I've seen the UNL 35 somewhere, but do you have any pics of these two?

The pictures from nikharwood (your bolg is great! I have followed it from a long time) are good but it needs some clarification:

2nd picture is not a UNL35, it may be a chevrolet or another homemade vehicle, look at the different wheel guards, the two cupolas on the tower, the ball mounting for the mg in the chasis is in the opposite side, etc.

About the trubia naval, also known as tank EUSKADI or toy tank, again the seconf picture is not about this model, it is a landesa armoured tractor, both vehicles were developed from the the trubia tank, something similar to a FT-17 but more cumbersome and with a hevy homemade look.

The landesa was only an armoured pillbox, without turret. It was used in the fighting in Asturias by the Nationals, against the republicans assaulting Gijón.

I will post  pictures later.

I believe that Leon has a master secreted somewhere on the luxurious new premises just waited to be released.

Picture of the master (without T26 turret) is here:-



I'm waiting for it too  :)

WOW! It has been a while since the last time I posted here.

Lets post some pics about SCW vehicles.


This is the Trubia A4 tank I mentioned above.


A very famous homemade armoured truck, from Barcelona.


A schneider tank, only used at the very first combats in Madrid and againt the Alcazar, in Toledo.

The last one.

A very nice National Army "Tiznao", made in Zaragoza

About the Trubia-Naval / Euzkadi Tank / Toy Tank:

It was built in Bilbay, by the Vasque Governmennt, with blueprints from the Trubia factory, in Asturias.
It was oing to be armed with a 40mm Arellano Gun in the turret and a Machinegun at the front hull, but due to the lack of 40mm guns, it was equipped with two lewis MG,s, that due to the air cooling sleeves, seem to be "light guns".

It was very slow, in theory it was able to reach 45km/h, but it never managed more than 20km/h. Suspension was really poor, and engine fumes filled the combat chamber, so it ws considered impossible to run it for more than 30 minutes.

That picture has got me thinking again!!  X_X

Anyway, is this now in production as SV67, BA6 A/C? http://www.pendraken.co.uk/SV67-p6649/

Even if it's the answer's no, does anyone have a picture of SV67 with a figure next to it for an idea of size please?  I'm not after it for SCW/WWII use so the turret isn't important if it's a different variant of the AV6 - if such a thing exists!

Cheers!

Edit:

Following a web search and a random stumble I discovered the existence of the SV73 BA10:


I can see it's a slightly different chassis, but how do they compare in size?

A picture of either – with figure for scale - would be great  :D
(I know, even though it's fantasy  :o  ;)  )

A Russian FAI armoured car would be a useful addition. It could also be used for the Winter War and early WW2.
