Last year I realised that I had rather stupidly bought a load of GHQ M48's only to discover they were A5 models and not usable as IDF or Jordanian. I did convert one and this was reasonably successful but I must confess I am not too keen to do this to the remainder of the models, especially as GHQ has released an IDF Magach-3 version now.
Of course if I buy the Magach's the question remains what to do with the M48A5's? They were not a cheap purchase...

One idea is to use them for a 6mm eighties Cold War project. I have a number of GHQ Soviet models sat around but I am struggling to find out which NATO countries (aside from the US) used the M48A5 with the large commander's cupola as modelled on the GHQ model (many other - all? - nations seem to used the Israeli inspired low design).
