Jungle Patrol for £4!

.
Dropped into a toyshop on way to the station this evening
and picked up these diecast hovercraft for just £1 each!


I a bought a patrol, ready to roll on the table for £4.00!


Wouldn't be too hard to give the windows armour protection and repaint them as required for different theatres/planets, perhaps with a grey-black-white scheme for artic/ice planet operations. Or blue-black-grey for a waterworld.

Cheers

  2. ...for £1 each buy 12 and paint 4 in cammo, 4 grey-black-white and 4 blue-black-grey. Problem solved! Which toy shop? An independent or a chain?

  6. Hi Thomas

    Sorry, chucked the packaging. Underneath the hovercraft it says Kingstoy FY708. There's some Camo and plain dark green ones left.

    Easily usable for Nam - they also sell a plain US dark green version.

  9. Mark one more question (thanks for answering the last one). Would they work for 20mm?

  10. Squint mode, yes, They are 45mm wide and 95mm long. No hatches or doors to give away scale and a 20mm figure next to them looks OK.

    Cheers
