Large Scale Army


M41 Walker Bulldog
Although Processed Plastic referred to this tank as an M60, it is actually modeled after the U.S. M41 Walker Bulldog light tank that began service in 1951. The PP7520 was packaged in a cardboard tray with eight 54mm scale Vietnam era soldiers, the Big Battle Figure Set with ten 6" soldiers, several command playsets or sold individually from a display box. It featured a 360° rotating turret, elevating barrel, four rolling wheels, an opening turret hatch with a fixed position gunner and a large rear opening hatch. Several stickers were applied that included American flags, serial numbers, white stars and U.S. Army lettering. In 1991, the desert tan color was introduced as part of the Desert Command Series to commemorate the victory in Desert Storm and included a unique Desert Command logo sticker. During the last 10 years of production, they were also cast in camouflage using a process called marbling. This was achieved by injecting additional plastic color(s) into the mold cavity and therefore no two camouflage tanks are identical.

Willys Jeep
Modeled after the Willys MD U.S. Army Jeep deployed in 1953, the 1/12 scale #739 was introduced in 1965. Over the years they were sold individually or as part of several command playsets. It included a 50mm machine gun on a rotating gun mount and a fold-down windshield. Rear accessories would change over the course of its production run (see 2nd photo) and would either include a jerrycan coupled with either a spare tire or radio. The latter would also include hitch/slotted plate to accommodate different attachments. The wheel design was slightly altered with the addition of a center cap (see photo). The 739 was produced until the company ceased operation in 2005. Colors included desert tan, army green, aqua blue (Air Force), aqua green, red and ruby red.

Assault Chopper
This helicopter was a hybrid of sorts. The front was inspired by the Bell AH-1 Cobra and the rear shrowded fantail taken directly from the French-made Aérospatiale SA-341G Gazelle. Processed Plastic released the 7410 Military helicopter in 1988. It included trigger action rotor blades, tear gas canister and side-winder missiles. The cockpit could hold a 3¾ action figure. It was also released in red as the T.A.R. Squad Assault Chopper, two blue variations as the #7411 Police Helicopter and the #7419 Super Defender Helicopter. A tan version was released in 1991 as part of the Desert Command Series.
