    has anyone had anything to say about toy M41 walker bulldog toy tanks? I picked on up at the good will for 1.50 and was thinking about converting it to a display model by filling in the holes in the bottom. painting it etc. anyone have any ideas or advice?

    walker bulldog

    Polystyrene somewhere between 1/35th and 1/18 10 inches long 6 inches wide 5inches high. The bottom says Montgomery Illinois, other than tha,t no markings appear. they used to be all over the dime stores and Wal-marts. now I see them at the good will and other resale stores .this one is tan khaki which suggests dessert storm, but I have seen larger ones that are Olive green as well
    . they really arent bad looking tanks

    That brings back memories. I used to have one. Come to think of it, they are pretty close to the real thing. That funky wax like plastic was hard to get paint to stick to (I painted anything back then). :wink:
