This new model kit from Voyager Model is available directly from Lucky Model.com.  During WW2 in it's fight against the Soviets, Finnland was pretty well outmatched in equipment.  In an effort to upgrade their equipment they created the BT-42 which was constructed from captured Soviet BT-7 that the Finns mounted British 4.5inch howitzers to.  Only 18 of these vehicles were constructed and they met with very limited success and proved to be very unpopular with their crews.

This is another of those wonderful photo etch sets from Voyager Model.  The photos in this product article are misleading.  They show the Tamiya BT-42 with 2 different Voyager Model photo etch sets installed.  

  • Voyager Model PE 35455 detail set (includes everything except the front fenders)

  • Voyager Model PE 35456 BT-42 Fenders (includes mainly the front fenders)

If you want to build your BT-42 with all the parts seen in the photos above then buy both sets.

You will be required to fold the photos etch in this set, but if you have one of the Hold & Fold photo etch benders from The Small Shop then this will be an easy process.

This detail set is available directly from Lucky Model.com
