One version of the 1/35th scale M113 from Academy does include the T-50 turret plus a few other interesting items such as the M40 Recoilless Rifle and flame thrower turret for the M132 Flame Track.

I wonder what the copper wire is meant to be.  I've never seen  T150 turret with a guard or handle shaped like that on it.

Maverick:
Apparently the guard is a "Fire suppression rail" to stop the possibility of firing the mgs into the cargo area of the Bucket.

The book Vietnam Tracks, includes a photo in which one can see an ARVN M113 equipped with an M8 armored-car
turret, along with photos of M74C turret equipped ARVN and Oz vehicles.

Another early ARVN addition was the mounting of armored helicopter seats on top of the original ACAV-type vehicles for
unit commanders and their US advisors.

I do wonder if a version that would have six road wheels per side would degrade it's swimming capability.
