PK-75 Matchbox Humber Mk. II.

Kit number: PK-75

First introduced in 1941, the Humber Armoured Car was first used as a light, mobile reconnaissance vehicle and as such were often in action. A total of 5,400 Humber armoured cars were produced.

With a top speed of 45 m.p.h. and a range of 250 miles, the Humber was found to be highly effective in the Western Desert campaign due to it's manoeuvrability in the open desert, although the engine life was reputed to be limited to only 3,000 miles.

Humber armoured cars also served in Europe in an anti-aircraft capacity with armoured Car Regimental Headquarters.
