M-113 conversion in T-LAV, where to find parts ?
« on: January 22, 2015, 20:09:26 »
I'm preparing the project to convert an M-113 in a 5/6 road wheels T-LAV.  Anyone can tell me where to find the good RWS, the protective grill, etc ?

Thanks

There's not kit or conversion available for the stretched M113A3 MTVL or the correct RWS or the bar armour package.

You can build an M113A3 TLAV with the French Best Value Models conversion found in France at Azimut.

worst case you'll have to scratch build the conversion parts your self, i've tried it before, results aren't great cause it was my first time doing it, but scratch building can get better detail in the long run after some practice.

Thanks for the info, I'll look into that.  I'm not at the scratch building lever yet, if I ever get there :)

Here's a good thread to get you started on a 5-wheel TLAV:
