Jumping to the next random topic - today I want to take a look at the Matchbox M24 Chaffee and the Matador Models NM116 Conversion Set.
I managed to get a hold of 2 of the Matador Models NM116 conversion sets 3 or 4 years ago, but only snagged a couple of Matchbox M24 Chaffee a couple of years back - so of course it wasn't until this year that I was able to have a crack at these. Then once I started I was so put off by the whole thing that it probably took me all year to finish the two kits.
First off I love the NM116. It's the epitome of a teeny weeny tank trying to take on the Soviet war machine - my kind of against all odds weapon system. Here's a few pics of what it's meant to look like:
