The basis for my scratchbuild was a plan from a guy (I think his name was Brady) on the old rec.mininatures,historical newsgroup (or something like that). The deal was he gave me his plans, I would take pictures of the completed craft to show him. Unfortunately, due to several factors, I lost his email address, so I figure posting them here may be the best way of letting him see them.

I modified his basic plans to make them more useful for Command Decision games, and they have seen action in a couple of multi player CD games.

I figured that these would provide a good example of quantity having a quality all of its own. Click on the link below for more details:

LCVPs were so blocky and utilitarian to begin with that these are perfect!

Those look great! Any chance on getting hold of the plans? I have the file from Paper Tiger Armaments. A nice model but it is more of a serious model than a wargame one. Hard to build.

I will have a look and see if I still have the plans, and if I do I will post them on my blog.
