Work in Progress - Matchbox M16 Half-Track

A couple of 1/76 scale M16 Half-tracks (w/50cal quad) under construction. This is the Matchbox-Revell re-release.

The tracks are far too fragile though. I'll have to try and find an alternative as these broke as soon as I tried to get them over the rear roller assembly.

Apart from the problem with the dodgy tracks, the kit looks as sharp in detail and as easy to put together as it ever was.

Altaya Die-Cast Repaints



Some more of the new Altaya die-cast tanks recently out on the market here in newsagents in Spain.





Ideal for wargamers. Not really worth building models when these are on sale for just 10.95 Euros apiece.

Some photos below of of Altaya die-casts repainted by fellow wargamer Carlos de la Concha. The figures inside that repainted "Rommel Chariot" are two old Matchbox figures.
