What are Ace like to build these days, are newer one's any better than older kits?

AT LAST!!!! some 1/7nd scale V-150's, I have been wanting some of these for years!!

Chris.

I'd like to see a Commando Scout, in any scale really.  Always like it's 70's sport car looks, like an armoured Stratos.
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

I had a die cast one as a kid, think it was a corgi one, and have liked them ever since. They have loads of whiffing potential too.

The Commando Scout is kind of like a wheeled Scorpion really. I doubt you're going to see a kit of it any time soon though, 'cos nearly nobody bought it: just Egypt and Indonesia, as far as I know.

Yup, but at the time everyone thought it was a working prototype and would go into series production and be sold all over the world. Back in the day model companies would vie with each other to be first out with a new model (I'm not saying the Tamiya Sgt York falls into this category) but it's why you have an awful lot of models out there, Airfix Buccaneer, which represent the prototype.

They didn't even have to sell the Sgt York all over the world, just to the US Army would have been enough to justify a model. Model companies play to their customers: that's why you get so many kits of Japanese vehicles that are never seen outside of Japan 'on the world stage', but French stuff, which is a fixture in just about every dirty-little-war, has been generally under-represented.

I wonder if A-Model take suggestions? If so, one thing they might consider is a 1/72nd M18 Hellcat: as far as I know, that's NEVER been kitted in 1/72nd and I can't seen any reason why not...

Somebody did I swear, although it may have been 1/76 ? Nitto ? I had one when I was wargamming back in the 70's/80's  :blink: Their small scale armour was really good. Even had internal detail
