Here's pic from the Falklands while the Argentinian troops were dealing with Royal Marines. There are a few more pics out there to be found.

The camouflage scheme would have come much later than the Falklands. That pic I think was taken in 2007.

Here are more pics of the LARCs on the Falkland Islands.

You'd never know from the B&W image above that the 15 was in red....except for the fact those exact decals are provided in the Hobby Fan LARC kit.

Wow.... this does bring back a whole bunch of memories. This was our primary vehicle during beach ops when I was with Navy Beachmasters 78-81. I may have to add that to my stash

It is correct, the rigth colours of that time was only green. The others eschemes are post malvinas / Falklands.
More Pictures more of the vehicle, the Argentinean Larc-V has little differences of the rest.
Look...









The last view was take before they were to Malvinas / Falklands, In the boat transport.

Can't thank you enough!

I have the kit and want to make it as a current Argentinean vehicle, wasn't aware of the domestic mods.

Very good build too.

Cheers,

Christophe

Looks great, cant wait to see it finished.

Growing up one of the local police departments near me had one of these for the dive rescue team for the Niagara river and I remember watching as a kid drive in and out of the water and being totally amazed by it.
