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.

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 His website looks horribly out-of-date.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.
