    Hi guys 'nother question from the newbie :wave: .

    Been trying to locate a manufacturer of military models, in particular British armour, trucks, tanks etc with no luck. I know Roco do a couple of items but not British, any one any ideas or can point me in the right direction?? Your help appreciated on this matter otherwise i might have to rethink my layout:cry:

    Slurp,
    I remember seeing some pewter military pieces for war gamers someplace. And I think there was a company called 'Trucks and tracks' that was making resin military pieces in N scale. For the pewter pieces try GHQ they might be the ones I'm thinking of.

    P.S. Yep, GHQ has 'Micro-armor' it scales to 1/285 so it might be a little small.

    THanks for that 2slim, had a look at GHQ and they onmly do one piece of armor (which happens to be US) in 1:160. Am now beginning to think i'm flogging a dead horse with this and may have to seriously rethink my layout.:cry:

    Very nice metals

    Last night I got 2 of the 3 items ordered. Gorgeous detail. Very pleased. I believe these are Skytrex Miniatures. I will try to get decent pictures up.

    Haven't seen them in awhile. When I was in N scale, I used to use Micro-Machines. I think they may have been a little out of scale.But,some cleaning of the flash, protypical paint jobs, a little weathering and they made a great cheap, military flatcar loads.
