Crikey if the PP range does much of these in 15mm, the will need to put the price up to employ another member of staff to produce them some wicked cars and trucks!!
Love the British Tatra T87 Staff Car make a great addition to the WW2 range.

Amazing to see how the designs and ideas differed in the vehicles through the period 1930's -1950's.

I am sure that Opel bus would be useful for SCW, WW2, AK47 etc.

The British trucks would be great. Nobody does tank transporters in 1/100th ??? The Scamell Pioneer would be fantastic !!!

Hey - hold on - I'll settle for some Commonwealth crews for the new resin M3s for starters!

I'm guessing Martin may sell more of those than tank transporters (he says, hopefully...)  :)

I could, but at 7 heads / vehicle, that's a lot of swaps!

How many half tracks were you thinking of doing?

I had been thinking of dong a British Motor Rifle Company: with 3 platoons, i think this would work out at 10 half-tracks (plus maybe a couple more if half-tracks used for AT tows), so 70+ head-swaps....

Yes that would be a lot of conversions, the catalogue does say metal crew, so perhaps a crew is in the workshop for the British helmeted seated crew.

Perhaps a couple with the tarp cover on!

Simon there are some seated British in the WW2 British range, you probable need to ask if they will fit.

Tarps seem to be present on a lot of British halftracks in NWE but they are all M5 or M9 with a few retro fitted AA versions iirc.
