My suggestion was based on the approach taken by Battlefront in their
manufacture of flames of war models.
They produce a very nice range of WW2 vehicles in 15mm.
Their range includes "vehicle stowage" packs.
Tanks kits come with different turret variations and separate spaced
A similar approach could be taken with the GZG range. This would produce
different models of the same tank and or tanks as modified by their new
owners. Especially for lower tech gear that has had add on packs to
it's life span.
