  2. s&s models do still make a gaming model of the abott and almosty all cold war gb vehicles. https://sandsmodels.com/product/abott-105mm-sp-gun/

    What is this?

    yes i second that, very simmialr to a leopard hull i believe
  5. as far as i can tell the morris tractor was not that common as a gun tractor for the 17pdr, the para's had 2 at arnhem and they were all converted 2pdr tractors. matchbox did make an odd choice for it. not many pics of them about towing 17pdrs, most were crusaders, half tracks, albin ft15n, morris quads or in italy, gmc 6x6's. please let me know if you know of any non para pics towing a 17pdr. tia.
  6. what scale did you want the guns in as there is a metal 1/72 model of the oto 105mm pack howitzer.
  7. yes indeed, someone may have the moulds but do not neccasarily have the production rights.
  8. i have the gran models sa2, not easy to assemble and in 1/72, the truck however is available from trumpeter, but a gs version. it would not take much to convert it into a 5th wheel tractor though. i recently saw a complete unmade model for £30! i doubt i would get one unless it was cheap enough
  9. the hobbyden makes models for gamers in the main, some are very good, they are easy to assemble being only a few parts, buy one or 2 and take the risk, you can always detail them and make them better. i know the guy who mastered the amx 13 range and having seen them myself at telford they look very nice. no one else does the rest of the amx 13 range, only heller made the amx 13 tank with awful tracks.
  10. i think the only new 1/76th vehicles will be diecast ones, i read that airfix were not doing anymore new military vehicles in 76th either. the scale difference is not that much to be worried about, i mix both all the time.

    1.76 Aec Matador

    well it is an old kit and not one of their best, i have built many over the years and just forgot about the mistakes and bad joins, but you can still buy models now with even worse joins and they are only 10 years old or younger! most of the airfix vehicle range has been left behind by other makes and probably not worth remoulding for the miniscule sales they get.
  12. hi mancunian email me sales@sandsmodels.com and i will sort you out a leyland gs body, not released it for general sale as yet thanks s&s models
  13. hi the psc and later battlefront models do scale out quite well for gaming models. they are almost spot on 1/100th but there are a few that are slightly over but if you do not mix them with the same vehicles from other makes then you should be ok. we do a few ww2 funnies conversions for them like arv's ect also zvezda do some nice 1/100th vehicles as well. as for railways the closest is UK TT gauge. s&s models dot com
