1/300th Modern Desert War Brits on eBay


With time at home to sort stuff like this out, I'm now selling on eBay a huge, fully painted, mostly Heroics & Ros 1/300th micro-armour British Gulf War and earlier (or, as it has Challengers AND Chieftains, something that could also be used for Omani's, or even as part of an Iranian armoured force?) battlegroup.


As well as the tanks and APC's there are also a host of options including air support from a Tornado, as well as some fairly retro mid 70's and 80's support vehicles.




This is all just part of an even larger collection which I had when much younger and is now being downsized to more manageable proportions.

The auction ends on April 5th at 8pm BST, the models are almost all Heroics & Ros but there may be a couple of other makes in there as well for some of the vehicle types

The set includes:

  • 13 Challengers
  • 12 Warrior IFV's 
  • 20 Chieftains
  • 10 Saracen 6-wheeler APC's
  • 8 Saxon 4-wheeler APC's
  • 15 Scorpion/Scimitar light tanks 
  • 4 Striker (Swingfire?) ATGW variants on the Scorpion chassis
  • 3 Ferret recce vehicles 
  • 5 Long wheelbase and 5 normal Land Rovers 
  • A command set of 2 FV432's and a command vehicle variant 
  • 1 Tornado, which is painted with Saudi roundels (so it only needs a couple of blobs of red white and blue to restore to RAF service if you so wish)

This lot would set you back just over £50 in unpainted lead from Heroics and Ros if you wanted to buy them today (tanks are 75p, other vehicles are 65p each according to their website), but these guys are good to go right now straight out of the packet - or with a simple and very quick wash with something from Army Painter and perhaps a drag over with a drybrush they'll really "pop" even more.

The models are packed and ready to be despatched promptly on receipt of payment. I have worked out that I can print postage from Royal Mail online and drop them in a post box at the end of my road as part of my one legally-permitted self-isolating walk of the day, so no worries about any delays in getting them to you either

10% of the final price will go to SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity supportiung ex-service personnel and their families across the UK.
