The original Matchbox’s Diamond M-19 is modified according to remembrances of Mr. Rudolf Kristka member of Czechoslovak Armored Brigade in UK. I modified cab and its interior, windscreen and doors as well as front axle. I also added some load on the bed.
The model of M5 Stuart was scratchbuilt conversion of Hasegawa’s M3 Mk.I according to the instruction sheet of 1/35 scale kit. Original kit represents the lover part of the hull and chassis. The rest /hull and turret,/ is scratchbuit of plastic sheets. Small details are made of wire, thread and plastic.
