Matchbox HEMTT

They just don't have catchy names anymore, do they? The Heavy Expanded Mobility Tactical Truck with Load Handling System, or HEMTT- LHS, came out this year from Matchbox. It has a moveable arm with detachable cargo container, which I have yet to paint. The rest was done in Vallejo 70819 Iraqui [sic] Sand.




What scale is it? The web tells me the real deal is just under 1000cm long. The Matchbox one measures up at 11.5cm, which is ~1:87. The cargo container is supposed to be 20' long in the above pictures. Here are some pictures with a 15mm Peter Pig USMC and an 1:100 Irishserb HMMWV.




Compare to these pictures- I'm happy to use it for my 15mm gaming.




And if you're creative...
