Hi Nick,

IIRC there was an article (probably in Latin) about converting Minitanks stuff up to 1/76th scale.

Suggest you contact Dave Blomley, Chris Groves and John Rulton, the most likely suspects in my mind for sourcing diddy scale M47 info.
Otherwise, how about these ready made and painted AFVs that come with a magazine? Just had a quick look at Tom's collection upstairs and not seen there.

I'll keep looking for you.

HTH

Hi Nick,
Happy New Year!

As in off-line chat, the only small scale M47s known appear to be Minitanks or a rare Polistil kit.

Anyone got a spare?
