Guess I was the one who got it, sorry about that. I can take photos of the parts and scan the instructions if you want?

Regards

What does the kit have inside it?

I think it was 4 large spheres and some plumbing.

It's hard to find pictures.

Frenchy, you're a godsend... seems like you got a solution or a great tip for everything, I've had a zippo project that's been stalled forever, cause I got it in my head to build an interior for it. Lo and behold, Frenchy to the rescue with the best zippo interior pics i've ever seen. Now where the heck did I put that Academy kit

Here's the photos of the conversion set contents and instructions, as promised a while back -








Looks like I'll have some scratch building to do, going by Frenchy's brilliant pics

Thanks both Mike and Frenchy. I've built the Academy M113 and still have the Zippo turret in the spares. I might actually be able to do something with it now.

That looks a lot like the defunct I CORPS Models Company's M132 Zippo conversion from the late 90's...

I remember the instruction sheet looking that way, less the page from the TM.

My thoughts exactly. I had that conversion some time ago but sold it off at a time I needed to loose a lot of my kits.

Interesting, my one is branded as Armour Connection, but no catalogue number.
