Yet More Chieftains

Continuing on with my refurbishment of old Battle Kings, I have recently finished the refurbishment of another two tanks - this time with much better photos!

Trackless diecast meets plastic strapping.
 I describe the process of retracking one of the tanks in an earlier post here.
Headless tank commander meets pin and new head.

Close up of tracks.

The tank on the left is the one with the replacement parts.

Two more tanks ready to enter the fray.

      You will be pleasantly surprised about how straight forward it is to refurbish old matchbox diecasts. I look forward to seeing the results!
