I've got a 1/72 MPC YOV-10 kit in the stash, but it has a different turret. How many versions of the real thing were there ?
I was a little curious about that myself - I had the original Airfix boxing of the kit, and the turret wound up on two or three different
bashes over the years. This thread at Britmodeler looks to have some more info-I gather the kit's turret isn't terribly accurate, but I don't know much more
than that. Compared to the photo Greg posted above, I think the kit turret is a little shallower.

Rumour (model show in Moscow) has it ICM intend to release a MiG-23/27 Flogger family in glorious 1/72.  :icon_beer: If they're anywhere as good as their recent Foxbats we're in for real treats!   :-*

They've also announced a 1/35th Sikorsky CH-54 Tarhee (S-64 Skycrane).

Back in the day. The proud arrival of another Shelter type arrangement at our Signals unit was greeted with the Brigadier complaining about "another green box to hide in the HQ area"

Shelter type vehicles, whilst outwardly boring have been few and far between. Just shows the days we live in  modelwise, where boring stuff can become a kit.
