Matchbox Stuart M3/A1 Honey

Pk-84. The original printing of these directions were faint to begin with.

Matchbox Krupp Protz Kfz. 69

Kit # PK-88. Pardon the dark spots around step 9--that's some panzer grey overspray when I was airbrushing this kit. The part number on top is 27, the bottom piece 48.

Matchbox Morris C8 Mk II

Kit PK-172. My personal all-time favorite. Of course, I'm a sucker for angled, pig-nosed British trucks. Use these little trucks as 15 cwt platoon trucks (the purist in me says not too) but until HaT makes them...

Hasegawa M3A1 Half Track

This kit has always been considered over-sized. Don't have other built kits to compare. Comments appreciated on this kit's scale accuracy.

Airfix 88mm Gun and Tractor

This is an old MPC kit. Never liked them, thought the plastic was too translucent and the artwork was never as nice without Airfix's logo on them.

Matchbox Monty's Caravan

PK-175 One of my favorite kits. I think it's a nice charicature of the British Army's vehicles--massive trucks (Bedfords/Scammels/ACE/Commers) and tiny Armoured Cars (Dingos/Humbers/Daimlers.)
