Matchbox M-16 Half-Tracks
I've had these two Matchbox M-16 quad A/A kits sitting in a box for a good few years. Back when I built them the tracks broke and had planned to fix them but never got around to it.
That was back in 2009 ...
and they've finally been finished today.
The tracks were replaced with some one-piece fixed track assemblies I got from two old wrecked Airfix Half-Tracks that came in a bag of "pre-owned" kits off ebay.
The original decals have long been lost - or used on some other kit - but I had plenty of stars in the decal spares box.
So , gven the time it's taken to finish these, it's clear I'm a very slow modeler - in spite of that, I'm pleased the way the old Airfix tracks work on these kits.
