SMilitary Heavy transporter vehicles 1980 - 2000

As an interest, I would like to see Airfix lead the way in designing and producing a new range of military heavy transporter vehicles, such as the Antars, scammels and the RAF Seddon Atkinson 401 small tank transporters used during the cold war years in what was then West Germany.The one I am particularly interested in is the RAF Seddon Atkinson 401 with the sliding bogey trailer that carried two small tanks, such as the Scorpion Light tank etc.. used by the RAF Regiments from RAF Bruggen, Laarbruch and Gutersloh. To see a convoy of between 9 and 15 seddons with tanks on manouvers from RAF stations to the training ranges was one fantastic sight, which always generated a lot of interest not only by the local populus but by many people interested in military vehicles. This would make a great build of one seddon atkinson plus sliding bogey trailer and two light tanks mounted on the trailer with restraining straps and wheel blocks..

The Sed Ak 401 could also probably be released as a civilian version with no modifications other than "not including the trailer".

Though I fly through the shadow of the valley of death, I shall fear no evil, for I am at 65_000 feet and climbing.
