Hi Tom

If you like to scratch build something smaller there is the Norwegian NM130 Armoured Recovery Vehicle based on an M-24 chassis.

Wow - I've seen some of the pics, but there are lots I hadn't seen before. This is extremely useful - thanks Ralph!

Hi Tom

If you are interested in scratch building the Alacran this site should interest you. The guy is scratch building it with lots of photos.

Saw that Alacran in a Tankograd book, and when I figure out some dimensions for the bucket arm there's an Esci kit waiting for conversion! Should be an interesting scratch-build...

Forgive me, if this has been posted, before. I just thought, with all the US Cold War/'Nam kits coming out, one of you would appreciate this.
