It feels like cheating getting ready made kits but it was a bargain to boot.
Upfront I must confess I have been very envious of the wargamer blogger tales of the Tank Magazine miniatures from down south (NZ and Oz). In the UK I seemed to totally miss its appearance. However I found this little chap sitting in an outlet that sells/specialises in end-of-stock specials (aka the Yorkshire Trading Store).
T-55A Polish Army Prague(Czechoslovakia) - 1968
No magazine just the tank retailing at £2.99, sadly there was only this kit and one other left in stock. It is very nicely put together, functional as per the real thing. It did have a minor accident with a wheel came off as I unshipped it but I managed to repair it with a bit of superglue :)
Something for a Chieftain or a Centurion to poke its nose at circa 1970! 20mm Skirmish game material I think.
