Not a scale I mess with (unless paid too of course :D)
But if memory serves, S&S models do mk1's and mk2's in 20mm.

You could always have it 3d printed Harry, Butlers Printed Models do them

Thereís a Matchbox diecast version of the turretless Mk1 thatís about 1/76. Might or might not want to change the wheels. They pop up on ebay from time to time. Best to look for a banged up version. Not to be confused with the Corgi Ferret which is around 1/52 scale.

S&S produce all versions of the Ferret. Not cheap ay nearly £10 but nice-looking kits.  The Butler's 3-d printed model is half the price to IMHO looks pretty awful.  No idea if Rolf Hedges/Liberation Miniatures is still going. His website looks horribly out-of-date. Refers to new releases in 2011!

In recognition of Lieutenant Colonel Faversham's brilliant handling of a BAOR all arms battlegroup, Harry's been promoted to Brigadier. This entitles him, and his batman/bodyguard, a personal chariot with which to perambulate around the battlefield!

All the Coldstream Guards FV432s are finished and based. Next up are three of these pretty ropy Easy Models...

Boyes had a bit of a sale in our pokey little seaside resort recently, got all three for £15. Now to see if I can make 'em look summat like!

Tickled up a bit, they're passable for wargaming.

That's a cracking result , well played.

Cheers Ash, as I got stuck in I realised 'ropy' was an injustice to Easy Models, to be fair. Windscreen wipers on the driver's vision block's a more than acceptable level of detail.

That 'finished' Chally now stands out like a blind cobbler's thumb, can't be leaving it like that.

Thanks for that. I'm having a fashion parade of Faverforce before they're boxed up and put away, I've no shelf space to display them.

A few miles up the road Harry's chariot has to pull over to let some heavy Allied armour past. Harry turns to his batman/driver and says...

"Do you know Hancock, my old man would have kittens if he saw that shower. Forty years ago he spent six years putting a stop to 'em running riot like that!"

"funny old game Sir, innit?"


Hancock replied.
