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
I am going to build a wargames army, a big beautiful wargames army, and Mexico is going to pay for it.

Rolf Hedges has some good models.
On the balance the helicopter gunship is also mightier than the sword

There’s a Matchbox diecast version of the turretless Mk1 that’s 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 His website looks horribly out-of-date.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.

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.
