-677 Armoured Command vehicle (1957-62)

Some photos of this remarkable model and the real world vehicle will do, I presume, as a lot of information can be found on this tmt discussion of April/May 2006:

Nevertheless, a continuation of this discussion is welcome here, of course! Kind regards, Jan

I'm fortunate enough to have a friend who owns an example of the real thing. I took the opportunity of comparing my Dinky.

That is a unique comparison opportunity indeed. Thank you!

Did you manage to take pictures of the entire vehicle as well?

Kind regards, Jan

Hi Jan,

I took a couple more pictures but it's surrounded by other vehicles and not easy to get a good shot, especially with my phone. Maybe next time I visit I'll take my camera and take some better pictures.  The owner wants to restore it and take it to Normandy for the D-Day commemorations when it's finished. He also owns a Mark IV Panzer, a Sherman, a BARV, and numerous other WW2 vehicles. I'm lucky with my friends.  :)
