M60 Family Photo

Here is a whole family of M60 series tanks.
There are many more options.
The biggest one missing is the bridge layer.  They are only now going out of service.
I always hoped Roco would do an M728 armored engineer vehicle.  But that never happened.
Also a number of mine clearing vehicles were manufactured, but not in HO as far as I know.

Just an FYI; Boley made the bridge layer; on an M48 chassis, not M60; but still "related".
And Herpa made a Bundeswehr breaching vehicle, converted from an M48; again, not an M60; but close enough for me!

Also; don't know if you ever saw it, but Lido "tintoys" also made a HO scale M60; pretty toylike, and it has some issues; but it's not a bad vehicle; biggest problems are the very flat running gear, so the tank looks too low; and the plastic luggage rack (which can always be removed). I replaced the running gear, on mine, with the very oversized tracks from a Boley Bradley; it looks pretty good that way; if I ever repaint it, I think it will look better than the zylmex model
