Does anyone know if there is a 1/18th scale (or maybe even a little smaller) METAL M38a1 display model available anywhere? I have been searching and have found the normal MBs, 1/43rd scale, new Jeeps and plastic display (Elvis) M38a1s. I would really like a good metal or high quality resin one for display on the mantle though.

Are you aware of the Mebetoys M38A1 (http://img.over-blog-kiwi.com/1/47/73/87/20150826/ob_6ae054_61987.jpg)? They are metal 1/25th scale with good detail. I found mine on ebay. They are not very common.

Not too bad - looks more like an m170 bc of the rear length. How long is it - like 4" or so?
