It would be nice to have the proper HT for my Canadians & Russians . The only M5s in model/ war game  form I know of are the PSC 15/20mm ones . Not even  in 1/35 , unless you want to spend big bucks from Shapeways . We'll just have to make do with the M3 for know . 99% of the gamers I know wouldn't know the differences any how  ::)

M15 and M16 has different bodies, so would need more bits

It's awesome model :-) Is there any chance for Allied UK/Commonwealth version?
Do you mean the M5 half track?
There are threads mentioning this here:
http://forum.rubiconmodels.com/index.php?topic=495.msg5063#msg5063

Yes, your right :-) It's M5 I'm talking about (and possibly M15/M16 if you'd be so kind to release for it any upgrade kits ;-) ) but I can't refrein myself of mentioning that you've never make any comment on possible M5 (and derivatives) in any of these topics :-)
Hi, Rubicon mentioned this back in January.
This model looks great. Is there any chance for M5 Commonwealth variant?

There are currently just too many vehicles (projects) to do right now.  Since we already
have a M3, we had to put the M5 on hold for a while.

Oh man, you're right.... but It was almost year ago. So, if nothing has changed since then we have to keep waiting :) thanks anyway :)

Why not try your hand at converting the M3 ?  Thin down the front fenders , sand the rear corners , change the head lights and IRC there were some differences in the rear bumper area and the battery box under  the right passenger door
