Gecko-Models was established in middle of 2016 by an experienced plastic model company executive. Based in Hong Kong, it has access to well-established production facilities on the Peoples Republic of China mainland. For research purposes, it has established a panel of experts in different parts of the world to provide information on specific subjects ensuring that its offerings are as accurate as possible. Its aim is to provide highly detailed plastic model kits, in a range of scales, and reflecting a range of subjects.
From The Modelling News Paul Lee's review of this kit - "Between the wars, the British developed a tank doctrine of specialized tanks for specialized roles. One of these was the Cruiser tank which was designed to be fast in order to exploit breakthroughs and cause chaos and destruction behind enemy lines. The A9 was one such design, but was found to be too lightly armoured and so the A10 was developed with increased armour, although unsurprisingly, this reduced the speed so that the A10 was no longer suitable as cruiser tank. However, this spawned one variant, the A10 Mk IA CS (Close Support), which was armed with the 3.7in howitzer instead of the standard 2pdr of the time, the howitzer and its smoke rounds with some HE, as well as its reduced speed making it perfect for the infantry support role. It has often been lamented that British armour has been neglected by the model manufacturers, so it was a very nice surprise that new kid on the block Gecko Models was releasing a series of Cruiser tanks. This boxing is the aforementioned A10 Cruiser Mk IA CS, and looking through the contents of the box, I was very impressed by how good the mouldings looked, especially the bolt detail although I have read that some people find the bolts to be too over exaggerated."
