A history of Airfix HO/OO AFV kits - part 14 - 1972
1972 saw only one new release. While an unusual subject it was at the time rather topical, as the M-551 Sheridan had been deployed to Vietnam.
I am sorry to say that I have never built this kit and so I am once again indebted to Paul at Plastic Warriors for photos of his (lightly modified) models.
I did once own a pair of Airfix Sheridans which came into my possession resplendent in gloss black paint! At the time the centrepiece of our wargames was a wide river, so amphibious AFVs were highly sought after. I do remember toning down the black with other colours but the fate of these models is - as with so many others - lost in the mists of time.
