First to Fight are a company based in Poland that specializes in Polish and German Armour and Infantry from September 1939. They have a vast array of unusual AFVs - some being produced in plastic for the first time. Here is my take:

Very interesting - and looking good in their setting. How did you make the crop?

Hi David. Crop is from Busch. Made for railway modellers it comes as strips on a sprue and you just glue together. Simple but effective.

Great looking Dio, I feel sorry for the Poles, as they where attacked by not only the Germans but the Russians too, (but managed to fight back the Russians). Well done Tom :clap:

With you on that Mike. Until I built the FTF kits I hadn't realised that the Poles had some reasonable armour. The tank shown is based on the Vickers E and was both well armed and armoured for its day. The Poles were outnumbered and the new Blitzkreig tactics overwhelmed them. But they fought on throughout the war both in the air with the RAF and as separate Polish units in most campaigns.
