In my recent haul there was a vehicle that looks like the Personnel Carrier with Minesweeper however it's not quite the same. I've taken some close up shots to see if anyone can identify the make?

I'd hedge a bet in the direction of Cherilea, only because the stickers are very similar to those on my Cherilea jeep.

I thought an early Irwin because of the wheels but Irwin always stamped their vehicles clearly...

I think with a bit of detailing and accessories it could look cool! Twisted Evil

How intriguing is this?

It's so similar to the Palitoy one, and interestingly replaces the tracks with three wheels just like I did with my childhood one. (although you can only see two wheels in the pic)



I wonder if it will get identified?

In terms of play value and ease of transporting your guys to their next battle in the back garden I think Cappy's KO has the edge on Paiitoys original.

Don't know it it's any help but I noticed last night that the numbers are a flip of the one cherilea put on their jeep! 432 204-S as opposed to 204 432-S! Maybe it's a knock off of cherilea!

This is bugging me now!! I had another random observation the other night that the wheels look very similar to the wheels on the racing car that sierra1 customised some time back! Perhaps they were made by the same company!?

If I'm correct, Alan Hall says in his book that there were 3 variations on that vehicle.
I never understood what he exactly meant in the describing text as I could only see 2 variations but not 3. As I'm not english speaking, I always thought it was a langage problem.

In his description, he doesn't speak of such important differences though.
