An update re the air defense one.  I have been in direct contact with AMS who confirmed it is in work but not yet ready.  They have provided me an indicative price in case anyone is interested.

Looks like hand applied mud cam...  The Leopards occasionally used to sport such cam, until they hit the wash point...
