Pyro Twin 40mm AA Truck - Olive Green HP

Here's another from Pyro's line of large Army trucks, the twin 40mm Anti-aircraft gun truck. How do I know it's 40mm? Well, the same gun is used on a different vehicle in the series and stamped underneath it says 'Twin 40mm Gun': "Roh, Roh Scooby Doo, we have a clue!" :-)  The truck normally comes with a gunner sitting in a seat projecting from the rear of the gun but it's long since broken off. As the prices on these can sometimes be a tad high, accepting less than perfect samples can be a good way to jump-start a collection. The gun mechanism elevates and rotates and often times the gun is so loose in its carriage that it doesn't stay in place. Fortunately my sample works quite well. The truck measures 5 1/8" (13.01cm) L x 2" (5.08cm) W x 2 5/8" (6.66cm) H. Enjoy! Opa Fritz and Oma Bettina
