The M51 Heavy Recovery Vehicle was based on the M103 heavy tank chassis. This one is on display at the 45th Infantry Division Museum.

Now here's a big 'n bad-assed recovery vehicle! Is there a kit available of this? If not there should be, especially considering the time invested in paper projects!
