This is a Roco Minitanks M41 Walker Bulldog light tank. Nothing unusual about it, but I wanted it as a point of reference for this weeks Bunker Talk.
This M41 has a Roco Sherman tank turret replacing the regular turret. Can you guess why?
Back in the olden days people used to make "instant" conversions. Often using no tools and no glue, they could convert a Sherman and Walker Bulldog into an M22 Locust light tank.
The resulting model does not look much like a Locust and is 19 scale feet too long. But in those days we had few choices for models and our modelling skills were not very good either. Roco never did make a Locust M22.
On this one someone painted these vents silver, they must have thought they were back up lights! The only other paint on this model is silver painted headlights.
Another attempt to create a World War Two light tank out of the M41.
This time they only used the barrel of the Sherman tank to create the M24 light tank. Roco never made an M24 either.
I have no idea what this is supposed to be. It has the tracks, blade, and lower hull of an M110 series self-propelled gun, but the upper hull and turret of the M41.
It actually fits together very well and has a sleek look to it.
But I have no idea what they were trying to make out of these two vehicles.
If you think you know what this is supposed to be, make a comment about it on Facebook:
