Terrahawks - MEV Model

[ IMAGE NEEDED ]

I saw this shared by my friend and master model builder; David Sisson.
Without that, I would've never come across it.

This is a great video. If you watch to the end, you get a great look at the MEV, which is completely different to the Captain Scarlet MEV.
This intriguing vehicle is used about twice in the show; to my memory; and only briefly. The only close-up shots you get are from the side.
You can see here that the crane arm (with laser cannon) is rail-mounted, so it can travel to the front of the vehicle and pick something up in-front of the cockpit.
I remember that the gun on the crane arm is gobsmackingly powerful; creating absolute havoc among the enemy with only a few shots.
Also, you can see that the vehicle must come in two variants; one with caterpillar tracks as seen in "To Catch a Tiger" and then with skis, like you see here.
They must have a few of these machines on SpaceHawk, since the one that you see is marked as #4.

I like the space tank as well, with the rows of zeroids on either side, which would've presumably worked like phalanx guns for suppressing fire or missile interception.

These models have held up surprisingly-well, given that nearly 40 years have passed by.
