The Alvis Saladin 6x6 Armoured Car (FV601) saw extensive service over several decades in all theatres of operation with the British Army. Saladin was armed with a 76mm gun and two Browning 0.30" Machine guns, and powered by a 5765cc Rolls-Royce B80 Engine. Saladin was a UK export success being sold to over 20 countries.
It is true to say that this was one of the best designed armoured cars of the post war era, often affectionately known as a 'Sally' or 'Sally-Can', and is still today an impressive vehicle when seen on a veteran rally circuit.
This 1/35th scale Resin kit by Jon Bottomley depicts the standard Mk-2 production version. Researched over a 2-year period and following the full expert restoration of a real vehicle, this model features full suspension, accurate tyres with subtle bulging, opening hatches, full external stowage, and all the subtle welding details accurately depicted.
An extensive etched brass detail set including rear mesh grill, optional gun barrels, coloured transparent light castings (with early/late variations) and full colour decals are also included.
