TimMee Toy TANKS for Plastic Army Men - Desert Tan WW2 3pc - Made in USA
|The Tim Mee DESERT COMMAND Tank Division is ready for redeployment! These #729 M48 Patton Tanks are proudly manufactured in the United States and available in this 3 piece set. Each tank features a turret that rotates, measures 6.5 inches long and is approximately 1:48 scale. Made from slightly stiff tan color HDPE plastic with lots of crisp detail and very little flashing. Modeled after the M48A2 Patton tank, Tim Mee first produced this toy in 1964 and modified the tooling several times over the decades until the final version seen here. It was manufactured in various shades of green until around 1991 when the first tan tanks were released in honor of Operation Desert Storm. We're extra pleased with this reissue to reintroduce the classic stars and serial number stickers that were discontinued more than 20 years ago. As an extra bonus, stickers include new mini-stars and a Tim Mee logo that can be used to identify your favorite hero vehicle. The stickers are supplied on a sheet and placement instructions are included on the back of the package. This is likely the most popular and widely copied toy tank of all time. These are real toys, meant to be set up, knocked over, picked up and played with for years to come. Recommended for ages 5 and up.
