D`Arc II

Post by Richard B. » Thu Jan 10, 2019 8:39 am

Matchbox Chaffee must be at least 20yrs old :D

Painted up and stowed to use with my post war French colonial force.

Chaffees saw service in Indo-China and Algeria

There were some nice kits in the Matchbox range. Filled some gaps in the Airfix range too.

Cheers Fred.

Where do you find them?!
How long has it been out of production?

Always keen to follow your 'off the mainstream' games kit.
Another modelling treat.

This has been sitting in a drawer for over 20yrs, I planned at one time to add a late-war US Lt tank company (replacing the M5s with M24s), but eventually dropped the idea. But had already bought and built 4 Chaffee, this is the last one :)

Two joined my modern African rebel army (now sold on)
One is part of my Spanish 1950s Tercio du Sahara and this one has joined the French - waste not want not :D :D
