I'm delighted with this. When I saw this in my childhood collection I felt torn. One of the tracks was missing and the other broken. I wasn't sure if I'd restore it as the DAK figures are crazily expensive. Anyway, a week or so ago I was offered a track from a chap in a face book group, then having that I went about glueing the other..a mix of evostick, revel moddlers glue and gorilla super glue stick the track together I used styrene sheet to get the two parts to stick and left it for three days before moving it. Not sure how long it will last but I won't be riding it round the garden as I did as a child. I'm going to keep the stickers as is as well as the odd bits of paint on it. Annoyingly I had the original penant and pole on a previous half track I sold several years ago.

I was a bit reckless last night and bought a Vintage DAK Internationals, in a few weeks I'll get some repro bits from Captain Cosmos. Think I'll put together another DAK officer using an Africa Korp jacket, despatch rider trousers, jackboots, pith helmet, shirt, tie and Luftwaffe goggles at some point too.
