Description

Used in Finland during the Continuation War (1941-44), the BT-42 assault gun was something of a hybrid designed to overcome Finland’s shortage of AFVs. It mated hulls from captured Soviet BT-7 Model 1937 light tanks with British 4.5-inch howitzers. These QF 4.5-inch Mk.II guns had been donated to Finland when it was fighting Russia during the Winter War (1939-40), and they were fitted in newly designed turrets. They entered service in 1943.

Models are supplied unpainted and some assembly may be required.
