My AFV 1/72 collection part II; AEC Matador half-track, Einheitsdiesel, Mercedes truck, Leichter Schutzenpanzerwagen, Gaz AA with Flak, Matchbox Baja Buggy German ww2, Humber car conversion




 
AEC Matador halftrack; here I had one of those rare chances to do a conversion without spoiling kits; I had two old kits, with various missing parts, and while googling possibilities, I stumbled onto a impressive real wartime photo of this, a half tracked AEC Matador. Apparently, it was only a prototype, but I've stretched it to depict it reached the desert (one never knows!). The actual prototype depicts some more sturdier tracks, but it was tried onto a Chevrolet with Bren Gun tracks, so I figured that was good enough.



 

 
Einheitdiesel; German truck for WW2, a nice kit with metal axles. Photographed one day it snowed in Spain!

 

I saw this looking through eBay, and although it is 1:69 I thought it was pretty good to combine with 1/72 soldiers, besides I\'am practically sure it was impressed by the army being a model of 1932. It is a Matchbox model; http://pictures.todocoleccion.net/tc/2010/04/12/18687441.jpg 

 

And I have repainted with a camo I found in another kit;

Leichter Schutzenpanzerwagen; or what is the same, a german armoured french military tractor  :-) . A fiddly little kit by Ace models.




Gaz AA with Flak; a nice set of a russian truck, with german flak, used by the Finnish  :P  in WW2.




Aufklärung Fahrzeug (Matchbox Baja Buggy conversion) 1/72; A military conversion, of a Matchbox toy car, into a menacing german armoured transport  :-) .





And finally, a similar conversion, a Suzuki toy car into a type of british liaison Humber car.
