I've just posted a tutorial to quickly paint the Matchbox Stryker MGS toy and make it into a respectable 25mm (?) model.

I'd say that looks a bit more than merely "respectable" …

Very nice job!

I've not seen the vehicle in any of the discount or toy stores here. It's not a Hotwheels, is it?

That is nice!!! Have you looked into the upcoming game Gaslands yet? Lots of use for Matchbox cars there. :)

1:64 scale, apparently, so, yeah, right around 25mm true (to the eyes, not top of head).

See? YOU are why I hate Texans! :-)

Well, if I'd known they were gonna go up in price so much, I'd have bought more. Of course, I don't currently do any modern or sci-fi wargaming in 25/28mm…
