More Flea Market Finds

On Mondays the market just round the corner from my work has several stalls selling toys and stuff as well as second hand books.  It's been a great source of wargames purchases over the years but this week was particularly good.  Three Altaya tanks at £3.50 each!

The M60A3 is in Egyptian Army colours.  It'll get repainted to join the NATO forces in Andreivia.

The Panther is described as an Ausf A.  I haven't checked it against my Panther book yet.  I may leave it in its current paint scheme.

And finally, I picked up a C1 Ariete for Richard Phillips who is now doomed to build Italians for the next Andreivia game.

The Altaya models aren't as well-made and beautifully detailed as the Dragon ready-mades but at these prices I wasn't going to look a gift Panzer in the mantlet.

Nice finds- like you say they aren't up to Dragon standards but some do stand out. Rather taken M60.
