Ice Cream Truck


Ice cream truck and catering truck at the shuttle stop.
Top view of the ice cream truck.
Bottom view of the new Matchbox truck.
Good cab, it could be converted to other truck types.
Almost looks like a minibus.  Might also work with waist gunners in the side windows!
Nice rear end, needs a little touch up paint.
Good vehicle for towns and cities.
Back of card.
Truck on the card.

Boley vs Roco


Roco M36 HO scale.  Probably 55 year old model.
Boley M36 in HO scale.  Probably a 10 year old model.
They are nearly identical in most details.
The Boley has various helmets, packs, and gas cans added to the vehicle body.
Here is the Roco turret on the Boley body, fits pretty well, but the hole in the hull is a bit shallow.

HO scale M36 tank destroyer by Boley.
It is fit together with a couple screws on the bottom.
The turret is just pressed into a hole in the top.
Very durable vehicle, perfect for wargames.
I picked up four of them from Fidelis Models recently.

Bone Spider

Bone spider.
Halloween is a good time to pick up various creepy items that work well for science fiction or fantasy wargames.
This bone spider is really creepy.
Did ancient spiders have a regular skeleton?
Did giant spiders evolve on other planets?  1/72nd scale Airfix soldier.
Here with MPC 1/32nd scale soldier.
And special guest star, 60mm Wonder Woman.

A new police car from Hot Wheels.
I think it has a nice clean, near future look to it.
The roof and hood lights and tail lights are pretty cool.

New Hot Wheels car.
Note the words "Hot Wheels" on the back, amazing detail.
Looks very 1930s to me.
I am considering getting a couple more.
I may do one as a Batmobile!

Boley Tow Truck

Tow truck in HO scale by Boley.
Boley did some very nice vehicles.
Note the little gasoline, oil, and water cans on the side.
I love the traffic cones too.
Excellent model.
Pretty good on the bottom too.

 Not a kit, is fully assembled and ready to go right out of the box.
