Mmmm ......Abrams, ASLAV, M113 or the Leopard ?????


Why not try a custom build (ie: kit bash) and make an M113AS4
It'd be so much easier if they made kit's of this thing

I have created the GB so you can start posting images etc of what you plan to do (or even start if really desperate).

Unfortunately the biggest hurdle to scratching/converting an AS4 is the lack of T150 tracks and sprockets in 1:35 (or any scale for that matter).
Cheers,

Rod, you can get the PSM Diehl 513 B tracks and work them into T150's.
Just remove the outer sprocket tooth hole, move the end connector in, move the track horn to the rear of the track and place a nut with thread in the same spot the horn was, and last of all, round the track pads off.
Then do that what?, 160 times odd times! Easy!
The PSM sprocket also "looks" pretty close to the T150 version.

Cheers Jason
