Anyone have any experience with both of these kits?

Is there a better one around? And by "better", I mean, easy to assemble, handsome model, robust enough for wargaming and neither metal nor resin.

I have the Pegasus kits – haven't put together yet, or even opened. The PSC kits I will buy so I can have 3 Maultier.
Can't beat the price of the Pegasus.

Henks site is an excellent source of info. Has reviews of the majority of stuff in 1/72 scale and will give you loads of info all in one place.

That's a great site!

It is very useful indeed.
I always assume everyone who does 20mm stuff knows about it but I forget that the crossover between modelling and wargaming isnt a 100% these days.

Or, for people who have recently come back into wargaming after a long absence. I have never really seen or handled any of these models.

The Pegasus models are very easy to assemble and quite robust. I have not seen the Plastic Soldier trucks but judging by other products from that company, I think the same would be true of them.

Pegasus is true 1/72 scale, so if you have (or plan to get) any Airfix Opel Blitz models, you should be aware that those are 1/76 and don't look good as part of the same unit with Pegasus. Airfix is more complicated to assemble, and the wheel/axle assembly can be a bit less robust. But you do get a PAK 40 75mm anti-tank gun and crew with the truck.
