Gaso.Line has been with us for several years and offer a wide variety of product, but how about something completely different? Who about some fun 1946 AFV 'what if's? Let's catch up with these unusual releases.
Gaso.Line/METATANK are a fun series of nice looking crawlers based on some actual WW II components along with the typical 'walker' base we see in so many films.

Their detail suggest that even the hardcore AFV historical modeler can have some serious fun with these kits. Below are only a couple of those kits released recently.

I think looking at the catalogue on their site that others might 'walk' off the pages soon.
