We’ve been pretty impressed with the quality of Gecko kits in the short time they have been on the market. We’ve also been impressed by their choice of subjects and this forthcoming introduction looks like another winner. The 1:35th scale Gecko Scimitar Mk2 CVR(T) Op. Cabrit* British Army, kit no. 35GM0053 should be available by Christmas – tell Santa! (RRP:£43.95 in UK inc. VAT)
* Operation Cabrit is the name of the UK operational deployment to Estonia where British troops are leading a multinational battlegroup as part of the enhanced Forward Presence (eFP). UK Armed Forces have a leading role in NATO’s eFP in the Baltic States, in order to enhance Euro-Atlantic security, reassure our Allies and deter our adversaries. The eFP in the Baltic States is a deployment of robust, multinational, combat-ready forces to Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland, on a persistent, rotational basis. About 900 British personnel rotate on a continuous basis alongside Danish, French, and host nation Estonian forces. – source: British Army.
