Product description

The Terrapin was a British amphibious vehicle developed and used during World War II.

Its design allowed it to transfer directly from water to land, effectively supporting amphibious operations.

Areas of use: The Terrapin was mainly used in the crossing of the Rhine in the later stages of World War II and was part of operations aimed at the rapid bridging of rivers and other water barriers.

For which country: United Kingdom

                                  The miniatures come to you unpainted and some of them have to be assembled by yourself - a little superglue can work wonders here! Sometimes there can be small residues or slight damage from the support structures, unfortunately these cannot always be completely avoided. But don't worry, this does not affect the quality of your model.

                                  However, it should be noted that due to the 3D SLA printing process, slight distortions (up to 1mm) may occur on larger parts. However, these small imperfections are easily fixed with modeling filler (Green Stuff).

                                  It's just a small part of the process that gives your set a unique character. Have fun painting and assembling!

                                  Although the figures are inviting to play with, it is important to remember that they are not suitable for small children. There is a risk that small parts can break off. Miniatures should not be considered toys.
