I like how he has used the AMX 30 DCA turret - I have thought of doing the same as a starting point for a Matador.

I still like the Stuart light tanks with the quad .50's.
Every time you eat celery,an angel vomits in a gas station bathroom. Tanks rule. I know the load is late,but the voices tell me to pull over and clean the guns.

Apparently it was something put together by Aberdeen Proving Ground just to see if it would work which makes it a shoe-in for the what-if world.

Does anyone know if you can get a 1/35 kit if either of the following SANs:

SA-3 Goa (S-125 Neva/Pechora):



SA-5 Gammon (S-200 Angara/Vega/Dubna):

As with the guns, it's more a case of any you can get rather than if a specific design is made.

There are kits of the SA-3 and I suspect the -5 in 72nd scale available.  A quick check of Panzershop's website shows nada and they would have been my first thought.

Gran produces the SA-3 in 1/72.  They have also promised a SA-5 in 1/72 but it hasn't appeared in the 2 years I know since the announcement.   There are no 1/35 scale kits that I'm aware of.  SA-2, SA-6 both by Trumpeter are the closest to it.  :(

I dug out my 1/48th OEZ Mig-21 to do a BIG sam to target bombers .... but I'll need another set of 4 wings to do it.
