Military vehicles

As a child, I had a few scale model military vehicles: a Matchbox #K108 M3A1 Half Track APC, a Matchbox #32e Field Gun, a Matchbox #30e Swamp Rat, and an unidentified tank. I don’t have them any more.

A few years ago, I bought a Tomica #114 JSDF light armoured vehicle and was amazed by its quality. (It’s shown on the right in the pictures here.) I was recently able to buy a Siku #0870 Tank (shown in the middle) and a Siku #0871 Armoured Reconnaissance Tank (shown on the left).

I find it ironic that Tomica is a Japanese brand, Siku is a German brand, and these scale models are all made in China.

The picture below should give an idea of the amazing detail on these models. I’ll be blogging about each of them in the future.
