My 1:76 scale vehicle projects

This page has hierarchy - Parent page: Plastic & metal kits

It’s been a while since I have done any vehicle kits and possibly a while before I do many more, but that said any progress I do make will be added to this section, I now have a large stack of kits that need making and really must get around to some of them .

One of my favourite trucks is the AEC Matador

This one I did a while ago and has survived three house moves, adapted for civilian use, the main adaptions was removing the hatch on the roof and adding glass to the windows.

The building and scenery in the background of the picture is part of a  diorama I did last year, to see more Click Here

I had found this AEC at a local classic truck show about 5 years ago.

I am going to adapt the AEC kit using these pictures to make the recovery truck in the picture above.

My next kit is this Airfix Saracen APC with a green colour scheme.

Basic painting done, although don’t like the fat plastic aerials so will change these for something much finer.

This section hasn’t really been updated much as I have had so many other projects on the go, but now I need to get kit building, the main reason is I am building a small model railway layout but part of it will be a military museum and vehicle display area, hence the need for 1:76 scale models.

A few recent kits I’ve acquired are below.

The first is a Matchbox kit from the seventies, I’ve been after this for a while and lucky enough to find one.


My latest find was found in a random model shop while in Bulgaria, a large Russian missile launcher, Zvezda is not a make I have seen before, made in Russia.


There are two versions, with the missile doors shut or ready to launch.



So do come back and see how I get on with them.
