A few weeks ago I excitedly stumbled across these three trucks at a diecast shop. I like military vehicles, but I haven’t really collected any to this point. The owner had these marked as $4 each, which seemed pretty good to me.

These guys are from Johnny Lightning and they’re part of the Pearl Harbor Day of Infamy series. Looking online I’ve found different versions of the packaging along with different paint schemes on the trucks. So they must have done a few series, even though they’re still listed as Day of Infamy.

They’re very well detailed, and exceptionally heavy. And as you can see, they’re fun to photograph! For those wondering, while editing I added some grain and slightly crushed the shadows. I think maybe I should do some more weathered black & white/sepia style edits. What do you think? Would you like to see some antiqued versions?
