Timecast produce a comprehensive range of 1980s Cold War models in 1/144th scale, or 10mm to me and you. Already available are infantry, equipment and vehicles for Soviet, British and American forces, with the West Germans coming soon.
To bolster the American forces in Europe two new tanks have recently been released; the M2/M3 Bradley and M60A3 Main Battle Tank.
Both measure around 45mm in length and although they are officially “multi-part”, the hull and the turret are single piece resin casts, with just the hatches and guns to add – very easily done. Note: A nice bit of attention to detail is the fact that the Bradly comes with two different hatches – the main visual difference between the M2 and M3 – so you can ‘hatch-fit’ according to your preference.
The detail on both figures is good and the casting on our examples was nice and clean, making for very crispy looking models.

(Fans of the Cold War era will be pleased to see the website appears to date from around that time too).
