Many years ago I spent a lot of my allowance on Rocco Mini-tanks to use with my Airfix soldiers.
Eventually I passed them along to my friend so he and his young son could use them.
Then while perusing the Bring & Buy at Hotlead I see these
My friend's son is grown and he is moving house, so there were all my old Mini-tanks some 30 years later being sold off at 2 bucks each.
The Centurions were my favourites (I like the Centurion still) and these two were the backbone of the armoured corps for my African Imagine-ation, Ruanda in their long struggle with the neighbouring and quite aggressive People's Republic of Simbaziland.
Now reunited to me, they guard the Canadian section of my book shelf.

Indeed. My friend and I were pleased to spot some of my other old Mini-tanks being played with by some youngsters at Hotlead. So at least 3 generations of gamers for a few of them!Delete
