I don't have my kit yet, but I'm eager to watch you others get started. I'll figure out my kit here pretty soon.

Andre, just be aware that not everything in the Legend update is usable for a Canadian RG. The Radio rack and blue force tracker screen are either not the same as the Canadian version or in the case of the BFT screen not mounted on Canadian vehicles.

I known, I'll use seats, gear stick and comm system.

Alex, do you have photos of radios used by Canadian forces in RG-31?

I know I can't enter because I already started my kit and it's almost finished, but I thought I would post these for some inspiration for you guys.

I am in for this campaign with the Cougar 6x6 MRAP from Meng. Looks to be a great kit.

Questions:

Does anybody know if this was made in other colors than sand? Is there a European camouflage version?

I have found a picture of a 6x6 Couger in Nato camo with Italian markings(!) Anybody know the story behind that? A sales pitch to sell it to Italy? Does Italy actually operate the 6x6 Cougar? I can only find that one picture.

It seems as though the Italians had a nice woodland style camouflage on there 6x6 Cougars. Bear in mind that this is a Cougar A2 with the high roof. But it seems to be the only camouflaged cougar in use anywhere.



Side note, I am still patiently awaiting the release of Panda's Cougar Jerrv to begin my entry for this campaign.

Alex, thanks for the quick reply. Since it is another version I will probably just go with the US Marines version.

Hope you get your kit soon
