I would very much welcome an all new
M108
M109 early

Then some M113's based on AFV Club's ACAV kit;
M132 Zippo
M113 with M74C turret
Aussie M113 with T50 turret
M163 Vulcan
ARVN M113 with large mg shield
M557

All with decent interior, please

Actually, I do not really mind if these come from aftermarket firms, but I see a good job for AFV Club




Hello Theo, you already got the M108 3d printed available



I am aware of your set, thank you. MR Modellbau also do one, if I am not mistaken.
But I would like to have one with an interior

Here-here, John!!!! I couldn't agree with you more, brother!!! Decades later, I still love that Tamiya released a styrene PBR Mk II.

For me, the Navy PACV or Army ACV is a styrene Holy Grail!! Seeing Monitors, an ASPB, Tango Boats, a PBR Mk I, any of the smaller SEAL boats such as the STAB, French Riverine boats, or even stryene sampans would all be fantastic!

Even an LCM-6 --- the landing craft that many of the larger River boats are based on --- from Italeri would be a good start.

Fingers crossed one day... Until then, Masterpiece Models is the resin answer to many of the Riverine boats on the 1/35 Wish List...

Recently started reading Sgt. Ed Eaton's "Mekong Mud Dogs" about his experiences with the 9th Infantry Divisions operations in the Delta, many of which were in conjunction with the Brownwater Navy... So far so good!

With Regards and Aloha,
