I found a great little armored vehicle labeled "police" in my son's toys. Can't remember where he got it. It is of course made in China, by kai jal industries it says.

Perfect little IFV with a small turret gun on top. Will actually make for a good grav IFV as the wheels are quite "under" it.

Unfortunately, can't find any others on the 'net, but anyone got other ideas and leads?

Check "dollar" stores. They often have collections of small vehicles.

Yes, my local Dollar Tree has similar vehicles.

The Dollar Tree has "bugs".

Alas, only one large ant per pack, but other bugs included too.

They're mean and nasty, have armored eating acid saliva, and can be formidable opponents.

All dollar stores are potential sources of cheap useful vehicles!

For "bugs" you can usually find clearance Halloween items (mostly spiders, though) after the holiday. Maisto and Hot Wheels have occasional items useful for 15mm or 1/72 armies.

yep, I know.
I am looking for specific links or products to look for, order on line if needed.

Love the dollar store, tho!
