From the top of the pile, clearing out old kits due to changing priorities.

This is one of Verlinden's late-1990's 'hull is a solid brick of resin' kits with PE, includes an extra turret (40mm / .50 cal). Yes, they offered that option (see spec sheet here http://i.imgur.com/riyo0dg.jpg)

For those unfamiliar with the vehicle, it's a derivative of the Cadillac Gage used in Vietnam and if I recall correctly, saw use by the Saudi Arabian National Guard in the 1st Gulf War.  Probably seen more action on Hollywood's big and little screens.

$30 CONUS plus whatever shipping works. Will happily trade for 48th scale aircraft parts to torture into kitbashes. Or boats. I like boats.

I swear I saw some driving around Camp Victory in Iraq in 2003. US Army MPs I believe.
They had the tuna boat turret.

Was just west of BIAP/Sather in 2008-2009.

Maybe you saw the M1117 ASV? That's a derivative. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M1117_Armored_Security_Vehicle

I have that same model in protective custody.  It is an excellent paperweight :)

It was probably a M1117, a development of the V-100/LAV-150 family, which were issued to US Army MP units.

It's a brick of a kit.
