T-55 Tanks finished

I've now finished the four diecast T-55 tanks, two green, two desert. The tanks were advertised as 1/43, but are pretty much bang on 1/50 when measured up, which is my preferred vehicle scale for use with 28mm miniatures. The US ranger is a 28mm MoFo figure.

Sneak peak- diecast 1/50 scale Soviet T-55 tanks

I've now started importing copies of Soviet arms from China! Four T-55 tanks arrived (in around six days- amazing!) and I'm half way through painting them up. The models are really detailed and have moving plastic running gear under a diecast metal chassis upper and turret.

I'll sell one of each colour on eBay and keep the other two- probably won't make any profit, but as shipping is negligible extra for a couple more than I want I often make the surplus available to anyone who wants to bid.

Dinky Berliet Gazelle truck

I found this truck in a very sorry state up the loft- I think I've had it since I was around eight years old!

Stripped in boiling water and caustic soda, resprayed and it'll do nicely as a generic Third World heavy duty truck. :O)

28mm Britannia Somalis

Not the best sculpts, but part of a job lot on eBay and looking forward to using them for the Ambush Alley/ Force on Force 'Day of The Ranger' scenarios:
