Hi All, I've just taken delivery of the 1/16 Trumpeter M-16 quad gun half track. Just one question, Are there any aftermarket accessories out there to enhance this kit as it is somewhat lacking in detail for such a large kit.?

Hi Bob
To the best of my knolidge there isn't anything out there for the 1/16th. kits. I have seen this kit built up and it's real nice. You will probably have to do a lot of scratch building to detail it.

Thanks Don. I was afraid someone was going to say that as my own searches have been somewhat discouraging. I'll hang in there and see if anyone else turns something up. I've no plans to build it in the near future so maybe someone will release something. Cheers, Bob

It builds nicely,The radio is suspect,and there is some room for detailing the solenoids and wires to the MG's. Also, a support for the end of the exhaust pipe would have to be a scratchbuild.

Hi Carl, Thanks for the photos.... Your half track looks outstanding..!! I suspect with that sort of inspiration I'll be building mine sooner then I expected. Cheers, Bob
