I'm sure someone has made a comment on this, but I couldn't find it. Lovely little kit, but it's depressingly small and therefore its value may be seen to be quite small. When Matchbox released small vehicles e.g. Renault FT-17, they were packaged in with other vehicles - as Airfix has done previously with the Sdkfz 222 and Kubelwagen (German Reconnaissance Set),

Since this kit can make any of three different options, I suggest that Airfix could include at least three of these in the one box and see how that sells. I could use another three at least, and would be much happier to get 3 or 4 in a Series 3 box than 1 in a Series 2 box.

I agree with you but remember this is not an Airfix kit originally But part of the DB range they brought. It a very nice kit but two in a box would be twice as nice. DB kits always were more expensive than Airfix, it did not stop me buying one at my LMS on friday afternoon at the full retail. I have loved this little tank since I converted one out of an Airfix Bren carrier back in the seventies.

There is a slight precedent for having two models in one JB Models box: the 105mm gun kit contains two sprues, each providing one gun. They are smaller than the Vickers tank though...
