TMD's BEF Matilda Conversion for Tamiya kit

I received the following information and photographs from TMD:

45301 Mk I (“BEF”) Matilda Backdate (TAM)
This kit backdates your TAMIYA Matilda to the Mk I variant used by the BEF in France, 1940.
Mastered by Mike Sills
  • TAM -- 35300
  • The upper hull corrected to represent AEC engine/exhaust configuration; early tool storage; smooth joints in the upper hull sides and the superior finish of these early vehicles that seldom showed the screw head details on the hull
  • Front hull casting w/corrected shape to match the early Mk I vehicles
  • Storage locker armor w/cast in square plates seen on many early Matildas
  • Turret shell w/Vickers MG and early roof layout
  • 2 pc gun mantle w/o the three small plates cast into the upper and lower edges of the turret face
  • Left/Right side skirts redesigned to reflect the superior workmanship in these early vehicles that seldom showed the screw head details on the vehicle sides
  • Early style tow/lifting eyes
  • Early style headlight w/o blackout cover
  • Replacement pieces for the outside suspension assemblies w/increased detail
  • Replacement exhausts to represent the AEC engine arrangement
  • Trench skid
  • Raised suspension jig
  • British style tie-down cleats
  • Clear resin headlight lens
  • Turned aluminum replacement barrel
