If you're trying to put together a representative British Army of the Rhine (BAOR) wargaming force it's pretty hard to do without wanting to get a Ferret Armoured Car or two into your force. This was a great little armoured car, with a myriad of uses that pretty much shows up on every British Army TO&E of the period - even in those that weren't supposed to have them.
Some basic info on the Ferret can be found on wikipedia here and here which is a website dedicated to the Ferret.
My Ferret is a second hand Cromwell Models Ferret Mk2. As I got it second hand I can't tell you too much about constrcution etc - as it was already put together.
However it took all of about 20 minutes to paint and came out looking something like this:
So not the world's greatest paint job - but very servicable in my book.
My current plans are to use this as an attachment to my FV432 Mech Infantry Company or Tank Squadron - probably as a vehicle for my FAO. Nice small target.
Here are some couple of cool videos of the Ferret:
