The Aliens APCs are good. They are more apt in 15mm than 25mm. I put 
them next to the galoob ferret (both are from the same scale). WHOO 
BOY. The APC is taller, about three times as long, and now the fusion 
guns on the roof realy scare me when compared to a .30 in the Ferret.

15mm is close to 1/72. So M1s, Leopards, Marders, Hummvees, etc 
should be available in model stores.
