M35 trucks for Nam

Post by Fire-at-Will »

A slight diversion from my current plans, I was distracted by these M35 trucks made by 4D I found them on ebay and acquired three for less than a tenner including postage.

Nice simple kits, which are good enough for wargames usage and not as useless as the original kits made by another company called 4D. I managed to find some suitable left over decals so they can now be used in Vietnam. Up till now I have raided my WW2 collection for suitable trucks when needed.

I also acquired a trio of BTR-80s for the same price
