The turret on the LTV 4 would make a great M8 Scott IF we had any viable M5 Stuart!!

I'm probably wrong, but wouldn't the Mirage M3A3 "Paris" kit just need a conversion to the top and rear?
We have no late war Stuarts, a very popular tank!

Maybe a complete M5 hull top piece so you could use any of the Mirage M3 kits Ken.

I've found that the best way to get the big companies to release
new plastic kits is to spend months painstakingly researching and
scratch building something. As soon as you've finished the last rivet
Dragon will release 4 versions of the kit in plastic. So yes, get to work!

Unless there are other modifications I don't know about.
Would current Stuart turrets be usable?

Is this the same company that produced those extremely large soldiers,very much like a scaled down (but not much) version of the Airfix mutipose sets? I bought a box and quickly discarded them, every single figure in 1.72 scale was at least eight foot tall and built to match! If the Stuart follows the same train of thought then it will easily be able to take on a tiger tank. On this one i will definatly wait and see.

Valliant figures:

The Valliant ones are on the big side. PSC seem to be averaged in size.

since I had the treads on the IBG carriers, this might be interesting, Plus

1/72nd Russian Zis 3 and 2 gun
1/72nd Pak 38

and another plastic ZiS-3 is always worth a look, as would clean 5cm PaK 38.
