Question # 1

Does anyone produce a conversion kit for the M125 in 1/35th scale?

Question # 2

Does anyone know of a surviving M125 in a museum or private collection?

 

I would like to build my platoon by converting the Tamiya M106A1s.

 

Thanks in advance,

Mike

Mike,

 

I also did some online research but came up with nothing. There seems to be no conversion kit available (online). The only similar mortar in 1/35 scale that I found is part of a Britsh FV432 kit :

I don't know if it is the same turntable but for sure it won't be cheap to buy a couple of these to build your whole platoon.

Lars,

Thank you for the info. Strangely, the M125 was far more numerous (one platoon per each Mech. Inf. Company) than the M106. At the end of the VN war the U.S. Army converted all M125s into M106s (greater range). There may not be any surviving examples to get measurements from but I keep hoping one might show up.

All the best,

Mike
