Military Vehicles

I thought I would try something a little different, military vehicles.  Diecast versions are available in several scales, and I have a small number in 1/72 scale. Today, I will show a M24 Chaffee light tank used by the US during the later part of WW2 and the Korean War.  It is made of metal with plastic detail parts.  The manufacturer is Hobbymaster, who makes a wide variety of military vehicles and planes.  If there is interest, I will add more models.

I like military vehicles but personally don't have room to broaden my collecting scope. I would love to see more of your models.

Very nice.  I remember during the early 60;s and in conjunction with the series COMBAT s whole series of this type of vehicles were made in plastic.  Wished I could remember who made I Dont Know them.

The second model I will show is the German Panzer Type IV. This was the most widely produced German tank in WWII.  It is also 1/72 scale. The model's manufacturer is Panzerstahl. Like the American M24 tank, which I previously showed,  These models have a lot of detail.

I remember watching Combat in the 1960's, and I can still see reruns of this show and other WWII shows on TV.  I do not remember a series of plastic models marketed in conjunction with the Combat series, but that is probably cause I was building primarily plastic cars and planes back then.  Back then plastic military vehicle kits were made by several companies in a variety of scales, such as Revell, Monogram, Aurora, Lindberg, and Renwal.

Today, I am adding pictures of a 1/72 scale German self-propelled anti-aircraft gun.  It was built upon the Panzer Type IV tank chassis, seen in an earlier post.  It was known as the Ostwind, and had a single 3.7 cm gun.  One of the photos shows the details inside the turret.  The model is from Panzerstahl.
