Just took a quick snap of some of the Playart military vehicles that I have collected over the years. Most are played with to varying degrees. All picked up at local swapmeets, toyfairs.Probably, the most of I have paid for one model is around $A10.

Cheers, J

They are bloody awesome!

When I was a kid in the 70's my mates and I loved PlayArt vehicles. Matchbox & Corgi made plenty of 1/64 WWII military vehicles but unlike PlayArt neither were game enough to make German ones.

Nice find I got around 5-6 Miltary models my favourite is the Kaiser-Ford 70s APV - Playarts usually fetch a lot of money here - it still kicks me that in late 80s new Playarts were 'dumped here' and sold in McKenzie stores for only 79 cents each where today they are worth a lot more - My Kaiser cost me around $15.00 NZ
The rareist Playart I ever seen and most expensive was around 2004 on Kiwi auction site a Fiat 124 Coupe Mint but loose sold for $33.00 NZ I never seen another since ...

Recently i brought 2 loose Playarts myself both playworn to fair
Ford Capri 1600GT Mk1 LHD and Matra Simca Bageera for around $2.00 swap meets are the way to go
My Favourite playarts in my own collection is the Bronze Metallic Dodge Omi Coupe (better then hw version) ; 2 colour versions of Opel Senator and a red Lamborghini Uracco based Sitoutte as well as Rolls Royce Corniche S1 Coupe -they did produce some unique castings
Why so few around they simply were so cheap that they were destroyed on the plyground and very few survive :)

i'm a big Playart fan, and have a good collection of the military castings. the apc is one of the harder ones to find. i like that all these are playworn and missing the mg's. they are hard to find after all this time. i see a few antennas on the apc's. that is rare as well.

i dont know of any other three inch schwimmwagens or ford amphibious jeeps. they are playart exclusives. :mrgreen:
