My 1/35 Canadian Vehicle Collection
« on: February 02, 2015, 13:08:55 »
I thought I would share here my collection of 1/35 Canadian Military Vehicles. Some are still in progress, some are finished. They span WW2 to Afghanistan.

Very nice, KB. Sometimes, I wish I had the patience to do such fine work.

BTW, the RPG protection on that Leopard looks even goofier on a model than on the real thing, if that's possible ;) .

Colin, here are a few more of the Cougar for you. When I built and weathered it I envisioned it in the middle of a long exercise out in Wainwright, going from wet to dry over the course of a week or two.

I do have plans to do a Coyote, Real Model has a nice conversion http://www.trackjam.com/RealModel/RM%2035131.htm. As well I have palns to do the Leo 2A4M with slat armour, and the remaining EROC vehicle the Cougar MRAP. That would besides a Husky Mine Detector G-Wagen and Iltis which are not done by any companies round out my Afghanistan vehicles. Then more cold war and WW2 stuff.

What? No IMPs warming on the exhaust? Where's the Cheez Whiz?

Excellent. The 'flesh' tones are unbelievably realistic (and amazingly tattoo free  ;).

I wish my skills were on par with yours, my A6MCAN and C2 MEXAS still need to be painted, though they are great kits, now if only there was a LAV III kit of the same quality.

That would mean that they need a BBQ strapped to the back deck which would become an identifying feature to identify them as  Strathconas.   >:D

Thank you gentlemen for your kind comments. I thought I would show some images of my Leo C2 Mexas for you Afghan Vets. Its modeled circa 2007, and I am aware that CFR 78-85132 was a mine plow tank, and I may still add that. I also realized that the name Bear is wrong, it was actually named Baltic. But that name was painted over.

The Grizzly is the AVGP with the 1M turret. The Cougar is the one with 76mm gun from the FV101 Scorpion.

Awesome collection! You've got the Afghanistan-era pretty much covered!

The one that caught my eye is the Leopard C1, you hardly ever see models of that. Did you scratch-build the LLTV & cage?

The C1 was my first resin conversion, its the Track Jam C1 Late conversion. I'm going to pick up some Orochi Leo 1 tracks and finish her finally.

The Centurion is somewhere on my list. I do want to do one, just looking for the AFV club Nato centurion kit
