Just finished my "Kelly's Heroes" Halftracks. These are OOP from Exodus Wars line, the Hoplon Mk.I. My buddy made me some decals. With the names of some of the characters in the movie, it is one of my favorite WWII movies. Check it out ! The one I put my call sign from when I was in Korea, '84-'85," Legion 4". The Track Cdr is from Microscale. I added a like detail making a little different as it is a Cmd Track.
I will use these as Rhinos for my IG. Painted them in WWII USA colors. Have a lot of White Star decals ... so will being using them more.

Nice job!

I do like those old models, although looking at them now they seem a bit simpler and low-detail than I remember them being.

The Mk.II Hoplons may have a little more detail. But the Mk.I reminds me of a lot like a Russian BTR-152.

The Mk. II & III Hoplons come with options. And two types, Mk.II an APC, and Mk.III an IFV. I will use the APC = Rhino, the IFV = Chimera. Mine are awaiting paint ... as seen here.

Very nice work! Good to see some (now I guess quite rare) minis get that lovely paint job on them.
