Great to see you building some of these classic Matchbox armour kits, Craig. Personally, I favour Matchbox's efforts with military vehicles over their Airfix rivals.

I think the Matchbox dioramas add a lot to small scale armour, and your examples show that to good advantage

thanks shaun and iggie i agree the matchbox kits are nice and this has a lot to do with the diorama bases in them infact i usually put together and paint them long before the armour gets finished ,for instance i have 6 bases painted/finished just waiting for the armour to get to the same stage :roll:

Very nice selection. I also always loved Matchbox kits.
