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

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

Thanks

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.

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.

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:

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

Thaks Jim- just saw the pictures. That is a C & C version, correct?
