    This one's got a free Tetrarch and a free Italian house & accessories;

    Look under British in "Military" for the the Tetrarch.
    I think the house is under "Free Downloads".

    Nobi also has a great , or had?, a great 1/35 Cromwell for free, but I don't seem to be able to get the download to work. Maybe you'll have more luck;

    1/35 isn't the most common scale in paper armor, but if you're willing to scale down (and up) a few kits in the printer, you can get a fair selection of kits. The 1/50 ICM kits are excellent kits and would take being enlarged;

    Good luck!

    1:35 Armour (Rescaling Models)

    You can build anything you want if you know how to rescale models.

    The formula is easy:

    1) to upscale, say from from 1:72 to 1:35, use the formula Fn= O/N where Fn = Final New Scale, O = Original Scale , N=New Scale . Therefore, a 1:35 model made from a 1:72 original requires 72/35 or 2.06 X (206%) increase in size.

    2) To downscale, as from 1:25 to 1:35, use the formula Fn=O/N again: 25/35= 0.71 X (71 %) decrease in size

    Have fun!
