Just a note on this to kit manufacturers, this Vintage Martin Marietta produced model kit in 1/32 scale sold today for $2,325.00
I think that post war US Army missiles is a very overlooked area and might be an area that warrant a look by them.
Some Ideas: Pershing and transporter tracked and wheeled, Corporal and Transporter with support vehicles LaCrosse, Honest John, Little John, Sergeant, Davey Crockett.
US Air Force Mace with Terracruiser, Matador and transporter,
Snark, Regulus, Rascal...etc
Just a thought

Just a little info here, but Modelcollect makes two very nice Pershing Missile sets, one with the MAN transporter and one with the HEMMT transporter (although the HEMMT is missing the crane). These come in 1/72 scale. Which for me is large enough.
