1988 Big Bertha

My friend Joel recently posted a couple of his Hot Wheels tanks, so I was inspired to show my Hot Wheels Big Bertha. Originally called Tough Customer when it was first released in 1975, the casting has seen about 10 different variations up to 1996. My tan variation is from the 1988 Action Command series.IMG_8529IMG_85301988 | 9372 | Big Bertha | tan with green and white camo | MY | small rollers

The other Hot Wheels tank that I have – a different casting entirely – is the Command Tank from 1996.

  1. Your two tanks look really nice. I assume the turrets are plastic, but are the hulls plastic or metal? Do they both have four hidden wheels at the bottom?
