Nice! Would you consider the 105mm airborne version and the 90mm AA gun?

Also, dearth of M16 models. Any retrofits for the Italeri/PSC M3 models planned?

Nice guns…

@brucka (and shaun)

Not so easy to convert either of those models into a passably accurate M16. Apart from needing a completely new interior and having to do the 'cut outs' in the sides, the biggest problem I see is with the exterior of the back of the crew compartment which is completely different on the AA variant to the M3/M3A1 version.

The other problem with the Italeri model is there is no option for the front winch, which is required for an M16.

I have a donor Nitto/Fujimi M3A1/M13 and a Matchbox/Revell M16 sitting in my "to-do" pile for an M16 kitbash. But if you have something better on the way, I would love to hear about it…
