Indiana Jones tank

Indiana Jones Tank

Genre: Die-cast toy

Comments: This is a cheap die-cast toy representing the tank that appeared in "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade". That vehicle was mocked up from the chassis of a tracked excavator I believe, and wasn't supposed to replicate any actual vehicle, but rather to give the impression of a WW1 or Inter-War era rhomboidal tank. The toy originally came in a fairly scruffy desert-tan paint scheme, and I repainted it in Deep Bronze Green to represent (generically) a British Inter-War vehicle.

I have no idea what the actual scale of this toy is, but I'm guessing it would be about 1:120. It fits well enough among my 15mm (1:100) stuff, and it will serve perfectly as a generic pulp-era tank.
