Shuco Laancia IZM in 1/43 scale

I have a random selection of 1/43 scale military vehicles. Not really sure what to do with them, as most of my stuff is 1/72 (or close to it). This is from Schuco - it is a Lancia IZM (don't really have any scale scenery to go with it).

Corgi Diecast

Corgi used to sell die-cast vehicles in approximately 1/72. Wal-Mart carried them for $3 or so. Tried to get as many as I could, but only managed to snag a few before they were apparently discontinued.

A pair of M8 scout cars - I really need to add some bed rolls.

The M8 next to FoV M3 half-track to give a sense of scale.

Forces of Valor

I am trying to organize and catalog my collection. Here are 2 Forces of Valor vehicles - T-34/85 and Su 122. Both are die-cast models. When FoV first came out, models were available at Target for $10-15 dollars. The prices have gone up, and availability is more limited. At some point I may try to weather these models so they aren't so clean. Mountain in background came from Lemax as part of a Christmas village, and the brewery is a card model from Metcalfe in OO scale.
