I love those interwar vehicles, many of them have unique design or features. Bovington has a great collection of interwar AFVs, and Light Tank Mk IIA is one of my favourites:

Indipendent.
It's hard to take good pictures of this. It's always backlit from the window above/behind it, it's so huge that makes it hard to have the whole beast in focus. On top of it that glossy bronze-green finish reflects light.
But it's an unique design and I like it a lot:

The Whippet. Lieut. C.H. Sewell commanded this tank at Fremincourt in August 1918. He was posthumously awarded the Victoria Cross (info from the Museum):

Hi,

Looking at the variety of the WWI tanks, I find myself wishing that Dragon or Trumpeter would take a shot at kitting one or two of them. I can't help thinking how cool a model of any of these would look on a (my) shelf.

Neat pics, Massimo. Thanks!

Chuck

It takes time, because they are all in RAW and need to be turned into JPG, post processing them one at time.

I have a very small amount of poor quality shots taken inside two storage hangars. None covers the subjects you are looking for, sorry.

The Museum is raising money for a new building. It will store most if not all the reserve collection. Among other things, it will have a "gallery" open to visitors. looks like it will be another milestone for the Museum, but it will takes a few years (think 2014-15)
