Well I have a 1/48 XV-15 kit somewhere
Fantastic. I was browsing eBay a few months back and found a few promotional images of a desert camo'd XV-15 that got my imagination going.
It's an odd scale, but you can occasionally find a 1/84 XV-15 on Ebay; it was a promo-kit sold by Bell "back in the day".  I'd love to find the Anigrand 1/72 one, but I suspect that, since it's OOP, that it would cost more than I care to pay.

!/84 is a model railway scale --- I can find loads of model vehicles and heavy equipment die casts in that scale but not in 1/72.

There are a lot of 1:72nd scale printed models of vehicles (many types) available at Shapeways that are affordable and quite detailed.

I first saw that on Scalemates and I've wanted one ever since. Looks like it'd be a fun project.

They aren't cheap when they show up.  There's one on Ebay now for US$70.  I got lucky and acquired mine from a guy who retired from Bell Flight Test as part of a package deal.
