1:72 Scale Metal Diecast – MCV-80 Warrior Tracked Armored Vehicle- Length: 3.75", Width: 1.75”
This Warrior model's body is made of metal while the turret is made of plastic. The turret can rotate all 360 degrees and the gun cannot elevate. The tracks are made of rubber and are fitted, however they do not move. The coloring and markings are accurate and realistic.
The maker of the model ,Amercom, really did a good job with the model, the panel lines and details are very clear and crisp. These models have different details engraved such as doors, hatches, panels, lights, ports, antennas, machine guns, ropes, shovels, etc; all of these done with high accuracy and proportion. When they are painted in different color, say for example, shovels and ropes, they are indeed painted accurately.
These models come in s very basic packaging, consisting of a transparent blister pack. The model itself is attached (via screws) to a plastic base which is made to look as rough terrain. The base measures about 5.5 inches by 2.5 and at one side of the base is some info about the model such as the type of tank, the outfit it belongs and the time period it served.
These models are not toys, they will not last long if played with. The tracks don't move and the turrets and their main guns and machine guns can be quite fragile because of their size. Some of the tanks will have a turret that does not rotate at all. (so if you try to rotate the turret or change the elevation of the gun and feel some resistant, better leave it alone and don't risk breaking something).
The Warrior tracked vehicle family is a series of British armoured vehicles, originally developed to replace the older FV430 series of armoured vehicles. The Warrior started life as the MCV-80 project that was broached in the 1970s, GKN Sankey/Defence winning the production contract in 1980; GKN Defence was purchased by BAE Systems (via Alvis plc). A total of 789 FV510 and variants were manufactured for the British Army, and 254 of a modified version (Desert Warrior) were produced for the Kuwaiti Army.
