Heres mine. Still no stickers, but I am not too bothered.
NO ONE out there makes any decent stickers , not for this vehicle as far as I'm concerned ! ( always to glossy and not the correct size or correct pattern) If you have any original stickers on any vehicle KEEP them even if you replace them for repro ones ( put in an self seal bag and pop inside vehicle then they won't get lost....) Ive seen used original stickers selling for more than the types of vehicles that they come off. Note ; above original cross next to repro one ..they can't even manage to get sizes right! also number plate it made too good, ( note; swastika and black line ) compared with original the number twelve should be a one piece sticker not in two pieces.
Love it, love it, love it. Don’t have one and now doubt I will get one as prices are getting hefty. That’s good if you have one but no good when you want one lol Good advice Tom, I will keep in my mind if ever I get a bargain come my way.
I wish I had one. Not something I remember from my childhood, but a cracking job by Palitoy to produce a toy with that level of accuracy and play value. At their height, Bob Brechin and his team were at the top of their game. The premiership of toy designers.

Just got some 3D printed replacement turret clips off eBay ... Hurrah ! No more turret tilt !!! (Every time I picked up or moved the thing the bloody turret fell off . ) I did try making some clips after getting a photo of the originals from daz ... But gave it up as a bad job . These new ones fit perfect, very pleased with them.
They don't seem to turn up that often and when they do are mostly in bad condition ! But don't feel bad because Chris also hasn't got one ( or so rumour has it! )
“10 of every vehicle Chris” Doesn’t have one! He’s probably forgotten about one of his lockup’s amd really has 11?!?
I don't seem to have luck with these! I won one on ebay a few years ago and when it arrived all the turret was smashed to pieces cos it was sent in a box with no packaging around the top. I sent it back but every now and again I wonder whether i should have kept it cos am sure it would be sorted by now.
That’s a great looking vehicle Tom, one I don’t have unfortunately
Aaaawwwww dont say that might feel bad as i got 3 . Lol yeaa one is mint in a box box is like 8 out 10.
The other 2 they're missing the top section so I made new ones 1st one I pained the armoured car make look better (water based pints ) then the 2and left it as it was put new and vintage stickers back on it .
So dont worrie if you dont have one that means another vam guy got more that 2 lol
