Hi all, I'm putting a load together of 1/72 USMC Vehicles to go on the Hovercraft.
I'm have a couple of LAV's on already. But I'm having trouble finding the likes of for eg M23MTVR With supplies or the same for troop carrier.
I've been looking around and it seems mainly 1/35.
Would appreciate names of model shops
Thanks

Hi Chris

Have you considered Shapeways/3D Printed models as an option ?

More options :





The M939 series of trucks has been used by the USMC. I'm not sure they're still in their inventory though...

This picture has been taken in 1993 during Operation Restore Hope in Somalia :



and this one in 1994 or 1995 in Ha´ti :



You can even use older M800 series trucks as well :



Armada Hobby also makes some in 1/72nd scale...

H.P.
