Cheap Tanks!

Knocked out a few TimMee M48's recently.  They were originally just testbeds for camo schemes, but they looked good enough and the scale looked close enough that I decided to finish them off quickly with contrastting wheels/tracks and a quick drybrush. Most folks associate these with classic 1/32 toy soldiers but the dimensions are pretty darn close to 1/56.

Clearly a bit futuristic to see an early 50's M48 in WWW2, but technology makes jumps in most wierd war settings and I could always proxy it as an M26 or M47.  At the very least I'll have some nice painted proxies for whatever a tank a given player wants to try out.

Full rambling review and more comparisons and pics here:
I also show a couple of resale shop toy tanks I found that haven't been modded or painted yet.

I've been conditioned to believe that is the Epitome of Tankdom. grin

I have two of those in a HOTT War of the Worlds Army. Nice tanks.

Thanks Folks!

These little guys are really growing on me. I think I'll add a few pieces of stowage when I finish up my K'47 Cromwell.
