To use an Americanism...FUBAR, or another.....WOTAM. 1/24 don't really suit 1/16 scale tanks.  ;)

Hi Prof
Thanks for the thought, but have to agree with Damo - it's not 1/16th.
It's bargepole territory - as in wouldn't touch it with a 10 foot - it has problems like the HL version, though different & worse.

I posted the photos of the toy M41 (available here in the U.S.) for laughs.  It's a crude plastic toy, about 1/38th scale, of the sort I had more than fifty years ago.  My pal and I had read a newspaper article about a man who combined 1/72 scale model tanks with Airfix and Britains figures to play a war game.  Now knowing that 1/72 is much smaller than 1/32, my friend and I gathered together 1/32 scale (or so) toy soldiers, plastic tanks, and Renwal or Monogram tank kits we built.  We arranged our game on a ping-pong table and devised our own rules for moves.  We added houses made of perilously-assembled popsicle sticks, each with a mouse trap inside, rigged so that the trap bar would snap down on a bit of gunpowder from a party favor or toy cap pistol.  Then at each fellow's turn, the roll of dice and pick of cards would indicate the move.  Just the right combination of cards and dice roll let the lucky fellow pull the string to the mousetrap.  The swinging bar of the trap would send the stick house flying in all directions with a sharp pop.

Hi Prof
Used to do that sort of thing but with 1/32 Airfix Modern Germans & Modern Brits, made cardboard bunkers, but no tanks. Used to take turns at shooting them up with 6mm Airsoft guns - Tokyo Marui MP5A3 & Walther MPL - was quite fun, except for the blister that developed on the finger you used to cock the weapon for each shot - these being single shot, but 42 odd rounds in the magazine. Ended up making a leather pad to protect the finger - like an archers tab.
The bunkers were quite thick cardboard, but after concentrating fire on a spot, you'd make confetti.
