Very pretty take on a Kaiser, which I'm normally not a huge fan of.

There was a 1:32nd-ish/1:35th-ish scale HIMARS available as a die-cast model several years ago.  Saw it at a now OOB model shop in Tacoma and often wish I had the funds available then to purchase the damned thing as I have never seen it on the shelf anywhere since then.  It was a model of the unarmored version of the HIMARS.
