Since @smeg-head is covering all the Wreckers & Recovery vehicles out there in model form, I thought we could do with a thread for real life ones to complement his good work :)

Is that real or a whiff??
From Accurate Armour website;
This model depicts the Ferret Mk 2/3 fitted with recovery equipment to produce an air-portable Armoured Recovery Vehicle (ARV). The conversion was carried out in 1962 on vehicle ‘00 DC 24’, by a REME LAD unit attached to the Royal Horse Guards, and was named ‘Audacious’. As the smallest ever British ARV, it is a very unusual and unique subject, which did see extensive service.

Actually looks like a nice little model, but not at the prices Accurate Armour are asking. Wouldn't be too hard to get a 1:35 Ferret and scratch build a hoist and rig on it. Hmm....

Middle pic.
Who came up with the idea of a sign to let everyone know that it was, in fact, a Tank Transporter?:D
That would be the OC Bright Ideas.... I think he said his name was Baldrick :)
