Light Tanks Groupbuild

Here is my contribution to the light tanks groupbuilt: The Hungarian 38M Toldi II(B40)
As I'm lazy, I added some Spade Ace tracks: the idea of removing of the sprue 250 track links and assembling them is too close a recipe for disaster for my taste.
I added a SBS gun barrel, as the Hobby Boss one is not that good, and also because I hate having oval barrels after a too-enthusiastic sanding.

The more challenging will be to finish a figure to go alongside the tank...

interresting... quite like the figures... I´ve got the feeling that in every MiniArt set (which is not depicting one of the major forces of late WWII) is alwasy a funny looking little man included😉

Hi Lionel - I'n in because I've one in my stash. The idea with the tracks is good. (I'm very lazy too...🙂). But I don't know something about "Spade Ace Tracks".

@ Fabian: And which one is the funny looking man? The one with hands in the back and legs cross? I like his casual way to stand... The best is in the French civilian set, where the priest is a real copy of the French Actor Fernandel in the Don Camillo movies:

@0 Mike: It's a brand of Friull lookalike I found on the Hobbyeasy on-line shop. The choice is huge, the quality is even with Friull, and most interesting, cheaper... For this set, take care, there's just enough links. It surprised me, as there were plenty of extras in the BT-5 or PzIID sets.

Hi Lionel. I have built this kit and I used spade ace tracks and I have to Say that it is the same quality as friuls (or a bit better regarding the holes).

Here are at last a few picture of my finished Toldi.
It's a nice little kit, and I was fun building it.

I hope you'll like it

Thats a nice one Lionel!
I like the track colour and the way the tracks match with the dirt under them!
