For the first time Magnus Lindstrom and Bob Prati are delighted to announce a joint venture producing two stunning WWI items for the collector.
Working with RP World Models, Tradition of London are releasing two new WWI products. This brings together both the popular Tradition’s WWI infantry and the detailed all metal Steadfast tanks in the form of British and French tanks with Infantry.
The first will be the Steadfast French Renault FT17 tank with six Tradition of London French infantry figures.
The second is the Steadfast Male Mother tank with 8 Tradition of London British infantry.
The First Tanks
These lumbering slow moving leviathans that made their debut at Fers-Courcelette, in the latter stages of the Battle of Somme during WW1, were to be the vanguard of a military revolution.The tank as it was nicknamed would change land warfare forever. For the infantry, who had been mown down in swaths are they crossed the exposed and heartless no man’s land, they were a godsend. The conditions for the crews inside these metal boxes were challenging to say the least.It was hot, extremely noisy, the cabin filled with carbon dioxide fumes from the engine, there was no suspension and when small arms fire hit the exterior armour it created “splash” within.This first action was fraught with reliability issues but the potential of this weapon had been realised by Haig, who immediately ordered a thousand of these fighting machines.Tradition is proud to present the first in a series featuring both the British tank and the French Renault FT Light Tank.

Tradition Magazine with Military History
In 1980 the toy soldier range painted in gloss was introduced, sculpted by David Scheinmann, and today by Andrew Stadden which from modest beginnings has expanded to a very extensive range covering many popular subjects and periods of military history.
