The Tank Museum launches new Valentine IX brick model in a three-museum collaboration with brick model manufacturer Cobi.
The Valentine IX joins the German Panzer I from the Deutsches Panzermuseum Munster, and the French Renault R35 from the Musée des Blindés in a unique three-piece brick kit.
The Valentine IX was an up-gunned version of the popular tank that made a name for itself in the North African campaign.
Simon Prager, Head of Commercial Operations, said, “Working with Cobi allows The Tank Museum to tell the story of the tanks in our collection through model making, and helps to inspire future generations of tank fans”.
Taking inspiration from significant World War II tanks, this brick kit is 1/48 scale and has 620 pieces.
The model has movable wheels and tracks, as well as turrets that can be rotated 360 degrees.
Model enthusiasts can start building two weeks before anyone else by pre-ordering the kit from The Tank Museum. The unique kit joins other popular kits by Cobi, stocked on The Tank Museum’s Online Shop.
