Valentine Tank
The Tank, Infantry, Mk III, Valentine was an infantry tank produced in the United Kingdom during the Second World War.
About this creation
More than 8,000 of the type were produced in 11 different marks plus various purpose-built variants, accounting for approximately a quarter of wartime British tank production. Over its lifetime it went from a riveted construction to entirely welded, and from a petrol powerplant to a two stroke diesel engine produced by GMC which was less likely to catch fire. It was supplied to the USSR and built under license in Canada. Developed by Vickers, it proved to be both strong and reliable.



Front. Yea, I'm running out of American tanks to build, so I guess it's time to move onto the Brits!

Left. This was not hard to design, it's nice to make light tanks.

Back. The back is, eh, I did what I could.

Right. This model is based off the Valentine II, just to be clear.

360 Degree view.

The turret has one hatch, I don't know if it is facing the wrong way or not, just be glad there is a hatch there.

The headlight detail!

Next to my redone Cromwell.

With a couple of my British soldiers for size comparison.

Thanks for watching and please comment.

A great tank. Really. You're right about the Sherman. With Hitler's "Supertank," Landkreuzer, it would have been probably 300 feet tall, and had a 105 mm cannon I believe. Same with the Monster, although that was a giant self-propelled artillery. Speed and mobility can definitly make up for armor.

Quoting "Q M" Christopher Honkzo6 No offence, but the British made better tanks than the U.S. (A Churchill tank was hit 80 times with different types of shell, and it withstood all of these shots, unlike the well known Sherman
Although I do agree with your statement, do keep in mind that the Sherman was a cheap tank that could be produced in large numbers, for 1 Tiger was worth 10 Sherman's, and we would send 11. While the Churchill was a VERY heavy tank, it suffered in the same way as the Tiger. In the end, yes the Sherman was a VERY bad tank, by itself, but in numbers (Like normally) it was a great tank. Sorry for the history lesson, but I do this all the time so... :)

Quoting Dane Kunes I love the British soldiers with the first world war uniforms. Could you tell me where I can get those helmets? I can not find them anywhere.

Quoting Eric 'Hawk' Mickle Great tank, albeit small. Is it in that scale in real life (with figs being the size of people of course)? >Eric
Truth be told, it is a little small for my usual scale, but my scale is a bit bigger than minifig scale so I think this is around a good size.
