The MILVAN containers are a very nice sight to see in 1/35th scale.

No doubt the same sort of 20+ pieces >:D to complete one suspension unit like the Daimler Armoured Car has (which my build, has now reached the 12 month mark and only finally looking like seeing completion)

I love the current era of never ending great releases, but really, I am after a scale model, not a scale replica down to the last grease nipple as a separate part.

This;



Along with this;



Plus a figure of Gunner/Lance-Bombardier Milligan, Terence Alan

Would make a wonderful diorama set during the events of "Rommel?" "Gunner Who?" and/or Monty: His Part in My Victory.

I looked for years for the ESCi Dodge version that was never made :(

I hope they will do other support vehicles like this.  NAFFI/WVS canteen truck ? many bought after the war by removals & delivery companies.  Maybe 1/48th versions of the Airfix airfield vehicles?

Another addition to the list.





more CAD at Armorama: https://armorama.com/news/gecko-models-sk-5-pacv

Some thoughts on added firepower:
a CROWS-J in place of the twin .50s
a couple Harpoon canisters for a littoral anti-ship capability
Hellfire or Brimstone launchers to deal with AAVs in the ship to shore movement

Nice - another to add to the list of "taking one for the team and buying the expensive resin kit for" - this time the 1/35 Masterpiece Models PACV.  Not to worry - mine is going to be combined with a M60A2 top half to create a hover tank of sorts.

Seen over on Armorama: US M76 "OTTER"



Going on the wish list next to the PACV.

Also, another boxing of the Lambro 550 trike, this time a 2-in-1 set:
