The Sunny Smile tanks are a bargain here in the US.

My childhood tank was exactly like the picture. I have seen similar tanks with a different shape turret though.

I think you may be right.  I noticed that there were hatches but shrugged them off.  Sunny Smile tank has a larger hatch opening with no operating hatch.

Am I thinking of the Cherilea tank then? I'm not sure if there was a link between them and Sunny Smile vehicles.

Looking at pics of the Sunny Smile and Action Man tanks, it looks like a previous owner swapped the turret out. This might be a good thing, as (IMHO) the Scorpion turret looks better. It looks like someone put a Scorpion turret on an American M551 Sheridan tank.

Nice catch, Walter!

I have another version, it's got a towing chain on the front.
