Matchbox (Revell) Armoured Reconaissance

Good evening folks!

Here's some more of my Christmas Break work. 

First up is the excellent Revell (ex, Matchbox) Humber Mk.II, all suited up for some North African raiding action.


Brilliant kit, very easy and a joy to put together.


Next up is the tiny Revell (Matchbox) Dingo, from the "Monty's Caravan" kit.


The crewman with the binoculars is from the Humber, and the Driver is from the Airfix Quad & 25 pdr.


This will build up the core of my LRDG reconaissance group, (Along with the Revell LRDG set, my airfix jeep and possibly a few UC's or a Vickers Tanks).

Up next is Monty's Caravan itself, wich will (universalisticly) be the HQ for my 8th Army.

Thanks for reading!

  1. Looking good. Does the binocular guy also come with the Stuart? I have more of him than I have Humbers...

    1. I'm not sure, it's a pretty generic fig. I've never seen the Matchbox Stuart, so I can't say.

      Thanks!

    2. If I recall correctly, you do get a crewman in the Stuart kit, but he looks different.

  2. Great work mate, these are really classic kits.

    Well done.

    1. I`ll probably be doing another Humber for my NW Europe Brits, but that will be in the far future.

      Thanks Paul!

  3. Nice cars. Everybody loves the Matchbox Humber. Wouldn't mind a Dingo or two myself if I could get them without the bleedin' carvan. Resin I suppose, 'sigh'. And the commander from the Stuart kit has his binns around his neck and both hands on hips.

    It looks as if Dragon are bringing out some variants of their LRDG chev too. Not sure how well these will scale out against the Revell (ex-Matchbox) 1/76 version. Might be worth a look if you're not too fussy...

    Cheers, Dave

    1. Yes, I saw the Dragon ones. I wouldn't mind getting one, if the price wasn't 20$ for one! Thanks for mentioning it anyway.

      Thanks for the compliments!

  4. I missed these the first time around. The Humber and Dingo are great looking vehicles, nice work on them! I particularly like the choice of crew for the Dingo; much better than the choices that come with the kit (I've left mine unoccupied for now).

    1. I found it gave it a lot more character than leaving it closed (it's already small enough anyway).

      Thanks!
