A quick search didn't bring up much except for small British tanks, the German metallers (prompted me to dig through my vinyl later...) and some sort of wingy thing. However, I did find Mr Bug Man with his trio of 30 mm giant scorpions.

These might do Wink

The cold war spawned some really really strange things. Especially in the late 40's to the early 60's. And having one of these sitting on the shelf would not only look kewl, but it would bring lots and lots of comments from anyone seeing it.
