The freaking differences between the Toldi I, II, and IIa (or is it IIA?). III, of which 12 were built I’m cool with.

Oh, Tim, that’s easy: successive upgrades in armour and armament.
Toldi I (k.hk. A20) – first variant armed with 20 mm gun, 80 made.
Toldi II (k.hk. B20) – variant with thicker front armour, 110 made.
Toldi IIa (k.hk. B40) – modification developed in 1942, armed with 40 mm gun – 80 tanks of earlier variant were rearmed this way.
Toldi III (k.hk. C40) – improved variant, only 12 made.
And very cute they are too. I loved painting 3-colour markings on 3-colour camo in 1/300 scale …
Bloody Big BATTLES!
