These vehicles are from a company called Midge Toy. A midge is a tiny little flying bug.
I have stripped the paint off wiht Simple Green.
I am going to use them as heavy recon cars for my 1950's Pentomic Army.
I am not exactly sure what they are supposed to be but they are similar to the Mighty Mite, a Jeep type vehicle used by the Army in the Cold War.
Looks good with 1/72nd scale figures. They models are probably 40 years old. They came in army green. I plan to repaint them soon.
