I presume one of your Holts is the gas-electric tank - I've never seen it referred to by any other name than "gas-electric tank", but presumably it had some model name.

One small point, which may have been a simple typo - the baby holt publicity tank was HA36, rather than -26.

Thank you, I will add the Holt Gas Electric and yes, 26 was a typo.

Don't forget the Automatic Machine Company's Land Cruiser designs (one of which is illustrated in Hunnicutt):

EDIT: Didn't notice Hedi had mentioned it earlier...

Actually, I wouldn't mind being reminded of which is which here, especially the ones Hedi mentions. Apart from the film props and carnival floats, that is.

Does the intent of the original question extend to SPGs? If so then you's have to add the Holt Marks I - IV.

Regards,

Charlie

No thank you to SPGs, I am only looking for tanks.  I am considering some model making projects and I like unusual vehicles and since the range is limited I might attempt all of them, over time.
