Excellent!

I've seen another one where they find a ship load of Sherman's

“O Lord God, let me not be disgraced in my old days.”

This should be enough to keep you busy for a day or two (if you can afford the price tag that is)

That thing is nearly as big as the Datsun B210 hatchback I drove back in 1982!

Back then I paid about $400 so If you don't adjust for inflation, the model actually costs more!

I would love to do a VC Firefly in that scale :-)

Was the M4A3 used in any of the Firefly variants? f so, you could probably mod the kit with a few changes to the turret and gun, along with some other odds and ends. A large 3D printer or maybe a vacuforming set up could help with the larger mod pieces.

Yes, that may well have been the case, and I have seen a customized version of the kit to make it a Firefly. There is a vid on youtube somewhere.
