MA106 1/35 T50 turret for external models (solid turret)   NEW This is the same as MA113 but is based on a solid turret with hatch, extended trim vane and cargo hatch with filter box.  For those modellers who want to build an Australian  M113A1 with no internal details - no turret basket or internal turret details.

MA108 1/35 AS 1728 VRC AMU with carbon fibre antennae
(pack of 3) 
NEW

 

The Antennae mounting unit (AMU) dimensions are based on measurements of the real unit at Puckapunyal.  The carbon fibre rod representing a 10 foot antennae is cast as part of the AMU.  This should make it easier to mount on armoured vehicles.

The AS 1729 VRC unit was used on Australian armoured vehicles and Land Rover FFRs from about 1969 until AMU / antennas were changed in the mid 1990s with the introduction of Raven radios.
