|The M47 Patton has to be the 1st on this page. This tank was first made by Solido in 1961 and at the time is
was the absolute top in diecast models. Nobody had ever seen these detailed die-cast track links. Solido was unique
in the fact that they had the technology to make these complicated dies for each individual track link. Solido sold over one million of these
M47 Patton tanks.
