All of the Notwork 54 sites were down for ~20 min around then. Should be OK now.

Hi Jason

Yes, there's a Canadian vehicle with those markings on it. RealModel has the paint mask on a PE fret in one of their sets.

Check out a pic here:

Wasn't there a LAV-III with decepticon markings on it? Real Models had masks in one of their conversion sets but I have never been able to find a picture of the real thing.

Sorry Brad, didn't see this until just now....

They're part of the Real Model conversion set. There's 4 of them beautifully cast in resin.

Hi Bob, Can I ask you where you got the ammo boxes on the sides of your turret from?

Thanks

If you're interested, Real Model also makes some update sets for the Trumpeter LAVIII. Here's one:

No, they don't. He's a modified JASDF figure from the Tamiya set with scratched Canadian-looking kit and a Hornet head with Maple Leaf Models helmet and weapon.

Hi Brad

Yep, plain white glue did the trick. The figures are from Realmodel.

Couple more questions:

Bob, what glue did you use to build your ration boxes, was it just plain white glue? Also, where did you get the figures?

Anthony, where on the upper body of the LAV-III does the upside down V go?

Thanks Guys

Top photo is from the Kabul area circa 2003/2004. Bottom shot is a replacement LAV-3 picked up after the other was hit by an IED. By rules ISAF rules all are to have the inverted arrow (thermal tape) displayed post 2003 on the sides of vehicles for identification of friend or foe.

Brad if you need any help send me a PM.

Thanks very much amd you're welcome. I'm glad you enjoyed the show.

Here's a couple of general internet picsthat show the markings. This is pretty much the extent of it and you'l notice that the second pic has the CFR plate turned around and you can just make out the small black maple leaf through the mud and dust on each of the fuel tanks lower down. Notice that there isn't a black chevron on the side of the hull. Some vehicles had them, some did not.







cheers
Bob

........Hey, did you have a LAV III at the Vancouver show over the long week-end?

Brad



I had one in the Vancouver show. Someone else had one in too and it was a Trump kit. I built the Realmodel conversion from the AFV Club kit. The only markings are the CFR plates and the three small black maple leafs on the front bumper and on the two fuel tanks in the back. Here's a pic of mine frm the Vancouver show:

Most deployed LAV-3's were devoid of most markings. Most had the CFR plate turned over, gun taped over,or taken off all together. All had the inverted arrow on the sides, depending on time frame mid 2007 and up would have the red stop or I will shoot sign added.
