Here's my rendition of the Matador Halftrack utilising the Matador Models KCM-8 Track set.
This is exactly what you get in the bag from Matador Models, a set of white metal tracks. The instructions state where they should be positioned in relation to the truck body but how they are fitted is up to you. I added bracing as I thought from what I could glean from the two pictures that I found on the 'net'. I also added headlamps, mirrors and wipers and also glazed the cab. The exhaust is also fabrication as nothing could be seen on the photos. This was a prototype only and was born out of the need to try and save rubber at one point in the war as the authorities thought there was going to be a shortage, however this never materialised. Shown as if it had entered service with the markings that I have applied:

Nicely done, I don't know why but it reminds me of Brian the snail from Magic Roundabout, it must be the wing mirrors. :D

A very unusual Matador, Steve. And very well executed.
