Is there any aftermarket accessory/details source for the MAFF nozzles for the C-130 in any scale?  Or is this a make it yourself requirement?

MARDER Infantry Fighting Vehicle repurposed as a forest fire fighter.

Bonus: narrator cupcake.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h5AzdV9G240

Background -
Airmatic bought surplus Marder A3 tanks from the German government, stripped them of weapons and armor, and installed collapsible water tanks and three nozzles.

I think halftracks look great, and the American ones are no exception, so I love these. I've seen most of them before, but I just don't tire of US halftrack variants, and there seems to be no end to them.

The AS.42 was used post-war by the Italian police, evidently they were painted cherry red,
which suggests a fire-fighting vehicle.



Convert the anti-tank gun to a water-cannon with a hose connecting it to a tanker, the hose
stored in the nose in place of the spare.

Command vehicle with the gun removed and more seats added, plus comms gear?

Or?
