Dinky, Corgi and Poundland toys go to war (in 28mm)

Post by dadlamassu »

For some upcoming games that were planned before we were "Borised" again, that I had decided were to be recce based rather than an attack/defence or delaying action, advance to contact etc I have been scouring the old boxes. All in all a massive saving on the price of plastic or resin models.

The Dinky Daimler Armoured car and Corgi Juniors Dingo almost spot on for 1/56.

The Poundland Jeeps are also very close to 1/56 (I have added scratch built MMGs)

This one is of indeterminate scale but fits nicely for size and look

Likewise! Many years ago another online friend from the UK (also named Alan!) sent me a small batch of diecast cars and trucks, which included a couple of Matchbox Ford AA light utilities. Much too big for 20mm, but probably perfect for 28mm SCW or WW2.
