A Magazine; Military in Scale, April 1996
I keep on finding this weird vehicle called Alvis Stalwart. It's everywhere, you can't miss it once you know what to look for. Till this year I have not had much fondness for the six-wheeled wonder but I'm changing my heart. Can we now have a main stream model kit of it, please? Trumpeter isn't afraid of weird things but I guess they would probably mess it up. AFV Club did the Scimitar so they're used to odd British vehicles... Never mind, I have enough to do at my build table anyway. The Military in Scale April issue of 1996 shows how to assemble and paint a Dartmoor Models kit in 1/35. John Davis was the man who tackled the full resin and white metal kit. Watch and learn!
The following four pages is on the history and use of the Stalwart.
