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

Brad



No, I've been meaning to bring a model to that show one of these days, but I got stuck up-island. C'est dommage, next year!

Trumpy does include the CFR plates, but they are not decals. look on the colour painting guide and there should be CFR plates to cut out and put on the vehicle.

Hey Brad, you can get CFR plates from Real Model, but IIRC trump includes them as a decal anyways. Besides, lots of LAV in Afg have the 'plates flipped over backwards.

Aside from the maple leaves on the fuel tanks and one on the front bumper, there's not too many markings visible after the add-on armour is applied. Some LAVs had the NATO chevron in either black or IR tape on the sides of them in Afghanistan.

Domestic training, the LAVs usually display their callsigns, but these are zap-strapped on placards to the bustle bins.

Gents,

Sorry to start a new thread, but this one is not for the building of the Trumpeter kit, but I am asking for info towards markings. I am working through build and am looking at the decals from the kit, which looks rather spartan/lacking. Is there an aftermarket sheet which includes stencils and actual markings for a Canadian vehicle?

TIA

Brad
