Andre, how is that anti slip coating made?

Great to see the builds in progress. I will get started on mine in a couple of weeks.



Hi Jesper, I used Rust-Oleum Terra Cotta Spray. This product is great.

I've finally got started on my Canadian RG-31. I think that makes 3 of these in the campaign so far



This will be an OOB build with just some extra stowage from the spares box added. And maybe scratch build seat-belts.

That Meng Cougar does look sweet....it's on my "must get" list.
And Pete that detail is awesome but is there just a hint of OCD

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

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.

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.

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.

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?
