Other than the AAVP7A1, can anyone suggest a suitable amphibious vehicle that could be suitably set in a sea/ocean setting? I am looking for a subject that is available in either 1/72 or 1/76 scale. Perhaps a BTR-80A? I know that certain vehicles are able to ford shallow water such as rivers or lakes, but I am thinking of something in deeper water moving towards a beach.

Henri-Pierre,

Many thanks I had thought about the 'Ka-Mi', but one of the others may be an option. Actually, I quite fancy the PT-76B. If I recall, this is quite an old kit from PST, so I will have to try and locate one maybe from KingKit.

Here's the Croco Models page on Hank of Holland website

Hobby Search sell their kits but most of them are out of stock or sold out...Maybe you could try to order directly ?

PS : did you notice the M76 Otter ?

Paul, Hobby Boss is releasing an SS-23 Spider in 1/72nd next month which I plan on getting. I think Ace has a PT-76 but it's a rough kit.
