Beta builders for new LARC-V

I've been obsessing over the LARC-V amphibian truck since I found photos of Philippine Red Cross vehicles while researching the fire trucks. I was hoping somebody else like Olli Bizer might have designed one, but no luck.

When I came across the JAMSTEC papercraft Chikyu drilling ship, its deformed hull had roughly the right look and proportions so I was off to the races! My simple design is in the style of Kato's fire trucks, but still took a few days to puzzle out even after simplifying the superstructure. The Dutch cardstock package design website was very helpful here.

The Philippine Marines version has fewer bells and whistles, and will be just the second time I've used a camouflage swatch like MarPat Woodland - it should be ready for testing in a few days. The Red Cross version will follow after the Beta build is done.

If you're interested send me a PM with your email address so I can email the PDF to you, it'll be in 1/72 scale.
