Well, back then, I used to love Matchbox kits, a small (1/76 scale) vehicle that came with its own little display diorama. Well recently I came across a few of these old kits, and thought why not build one, again.
For the age of the kit, the moldings are pretty decent, with a little flash that will need to be cleaned. So I started the build, it was alot of fun, and went together rather quickly. Nothing special about the kit, just a little plastic model.
With a little weathering, these old Matchbox kits built into a decent looking model, with suprising details. And of course, what would a Matchbox tank be with out it's diorama base. While molded in plain plastic, a little extra bits can dress it up, and you will have a model you would be proud to display.
Modelling is all about fun, next time you are in the hobby store, or looking through your stash, pull out a model that will bring back some memories of your early modeling career, and have a little fun.
