One such idea has been to do a M5 Ambulance conversion from one of my (now spare) Plastic Soldier Company M5 Halftracks. The reason the model is spare is due to a change in the force chart for my Highlanders - previously the Pioneer unit had a M5A1 Halftrack for it's command team. However, in the D-Day allied book for Flames of War, this was changed to be a truck.
I'm going to use this newly spare Halftrack for my 17 Pounder A/T gun unit - meaning on of my PSC models is now free for me to try and be creative with.
I based this model loosely on this (yes, I know it's American!):

I quickly decided that this wouldn't work - the struts were not tall enough and I needed a platform to model the green stuff on.
The final version (so far) is this:
Also in the works is a Ambulance Jeep - will see how that one goes as well!
