Here is a link to some of the pictures I have been able to get of the family of vehicles

also, Hobby Fan does a BEAUTIFUL conversion for a 1/35 M984A1. It is BIG $$$$$ though. I got lucky and found one for US$100, still a big chunk of change.

The wheels come in more than just Michilin and Good Yeat, there are also those that have the wavy "reinforcing" and the more standard "flat" sidewalls.

And I recomend replacing the wheels if nothing else. The kit will build up nice without any special detailing, especially if you are not showing it to a former crewman, but the tires REALLY stick out. This also goes for Italeri's M923 series.
