My final purchase of 2008 was a brace of Italeri fast build half tracks. I was uncertain as to whether to bother or not as most of my WW2 armies are 1/76. However someone over on the Society of Gentlemen Gamers posted up a comparison of the vehicles and they are almost the same as my Airfix ones. They assembled really quickly and produced an excellent vehicle. I decide to use these ones to provide some extra protection for my Russian Recce troops.
