1/72 & 1/76 Scale Model Armored Fighting Vehicle Museum

The purpose of this website is to support interest in 1/72 to 1/76 scale AFV (armored fighting vehicle) modeling. I hope to show the visitor many of the wide range of available subjects, and to list possibilities for obtaining kits.

It is a "Cyber Museum" that displays a variety of assembled kits from my collection of 1/72-1/76 scale military vehicles. In it the visitor will find plastic kits of the more popular vehicles manufactured by well known companies, assembled more or less "out of the box", as well as resin and metal kits, often representing more esoteric subjects that are generally not addressed by the mainstream producers. Some of the vehicles are simple conversions or kitbashes of plastic kits, further expanding the range of vehicles that can be modeled. The camouflage schemes are mostly accurate, but I am constantly uncovering new information that outdates my references.

Kits are presented in much the same way you would find in an actual AFV museum, grouped chronologically and by country of origin. A bit of historical and modeling info are also given.

A very good and original idea

He's been doing this for several years now, I thought it was worth reminding people!
