Its a recognition model, I forget the company name, ( I collect them - have some of different countries) but they were also sold as toys later.

I am traveling and do not have access to mine but I have a similar, if not the same, model. I have several different vehicles. Mine were made by Dale Manufacturing.

As a recognition model would of it and those other AFVs like it be made with wheels? Or where the wheels added much later when these were discarded as it were for the civilian market as toys?

I have heard this theory as well. However, I have a photograph of my great uncle, who served as a medic in WW2, in uniform posing with these models.

I am presently out of the state on business. Once I return home I will scan the photo for all to see.
