Toadman's Tank Picture CDs
Light Tank Vol.2
Walkaround CD

Reviews by Terry Ashley

Chris “Toadman” Hughes has created a web site ( with some excellent walk around photo series on various vehicles which is well worth a look for anyone wanted detailed vehicle photos and he has also released some photo CDs which contain additional images from those on the site of which we will look at two here.

The US Light Tank CD Vol.2 is a collection of detailed walk around photos on the following vehicles;

The photos are all of preserved vehicles and are quite large (about 1500 pixels wide) and have good details with some general overall shots but mostly extreme close-up detail shots of the exterior hull, turrets, suspension as well as some interior shots and are just the thing modellers look for with the M551 photos being most topical with the immanent release of the Academy kit.

The sample images here are reduced in size considerably from those on the CD to give and indication of the details included in the images.


Technical Stuff:
The CDs have an auto run feature when used on a Windows based PC but MAC users will need to manually run the Title.htm file to get things going and the images are presented on a web based interface in your browser so the feel is just like looking at a regular web page with menus to navigate through the pages and images, all quite easy really.

Excellent photo collections of the featured vehicles with large clear images to show the details well with an easy interface to browse the images and will be very useful reference sources.

Highly recommended

See Toadman’s web page for details of additional Photo CDs available as well as the on site walkarounds.
Thanks to Chris “Toadman” Hughes for the review CDs.
