Does anyone know of a aftermarket quad 50 in 1;35 scale, or does any one have the quad mount off the m-16 halftrack and is willing to part with it.

HobbyFan do it in 1/35th scale (although i'm not sure that isn't a post-war one) it can be seen:

For a little less ($21 vs. $40) you could get the AFV CLub M35A1 gun truck with the quad .50 in the back. THat probably needs some mods to back-date it to WW II, but it is les money and it's styrene as opposed to resin.

Just a suggestion.

The new AFV Club M548A1 "Guntruck" kit also has the M55 gun mount with trailer base in resin (the same one in the HF resin set). The upper parts of the mount are the same ones as in the M35A1 Nancy Guntruck w/40mm ammo cans attached.

Hey Mike I might be able to help, I have an extra quad mount from the Nancy guntruck...but it is missing the .50 weapons. If you want it's yours.
