Live Resin produces number of different upgrades for 1/35 scale HMMWV models. This review covers their Ballistic Supplies HMMWV Armored Seat (LRE 35154).

Does anyone have images of these seats in modern HMMVW's in Iraq. They look like they would fit nicely into a M1114 I am building, but I just can't seem to find an image of them in service.

I did not see these seats in M1114s... only in GMVs. Perhaps someone here has more info.

Looking at the one picture Yaroslav has on the live-resin website it seems as though it is only used in GMVs.

I photographed the seats in a GMV-S in March of 2004 during my deployment in Iraq. You can see my photos here on my website.
