These tanks were in rough shape when I got them.
That's the key to buying these tanks is to buy them in poor condition.
The collectors want pristine and original ones. I was able to strip the paint, prime them and replace missing wheels with no problem
A trip to Wal-Mart and I got a $1 can of flat white primer spray paint and a $4 can of camouflage paint from Rustoleum.
Deep Forest Green is very close to olive drab from Testors, and I like it a lot. Both cans of paint went on smooth with no problems, just like the most expensive hobby spray paints.
Five tanks, all lined up and ready to go with a couple 1/72nd scale figures for size.
