A review of Civilian vehicles
I wanted to create this page after a frustrating search to find some decent 1/300th vehicles for games.
Below is a small sample of models that is more out there but most of them are only useful as commercial vehicles. I don't tend to buy Irregular as the quality of their vehicles that I have seen is very poor (except for WW1 stuff).
Next I hope to add some more photos included pictures of painted models along with some ideas on converting these to other civilian vehicles.
Some of the options available to wargamers at the moment include:-
The vehicles available from Heroics and Ros, GHQ, Scotia, CNC etc are mostly military or commercial vehicles. You can get a good range of trucks, 4WDs and pickups but not many cars or stationwagons.
Converting some of the smaller models to civilian cars is tricky as they are very small in that scale.
Most of the architecture models available are the wrong scale, or have poor detail and very expensive.
Irregular makes a 6mm cars pack but they are huge and more like 10mm and the quality is poor. The cars in the pack dwarf my T80s and the articulated truck is massive.
There is a number of WW2 cars that can be used, but for games past the 1950s they look a bit out of date.
