Wow! Nice idea!

As far as I know, SFOR was established later in the 90’s, after the Dayton agreement, somewhere around 1995/96.
In 1992 the UNPROFOR mission was active (I was a member of that mission in 1992 and was based in Croatia),

Are you planning to build an UNPROFOR (white) version?

You are correct, as I wrote the photo was token in Bosnia without date (sorry) on my 4 tour in ex-Yugoslavia.

In 1992 I was in the Belgian sector between Osjek and the Hungarian border, the river Drava and the Donau. And yes it will be the UNPROFOR (white) version.

Nice, I am anxious to see the build.

I was in Sector West (Daruvar, Jasenovac, Grubisno Polje, Okucani) as part of the Jordanian Battalion.
So even there we were neighbours. :wink:

Start building, have to skip the first step because of the painting.
build the second step, starting the 3 looking a little bit surprised.
Knowing it from the old kits, but it’s the first time I have a new kit that doesn’t fit.
The lower hull is a little bit deformed so the upper won’t fit exactly.
Broth some supports on and used a hairdryer to heat it carefully, let is stay overnight hoping after cooling down it will stay in the right position.


It’s not 100%, but wen I leave the supports and glue them, and with some putty it will be usable.

IFOR went into Bosnia around Jan/Feb 1996. They were relieved by all the subsequent SFOR rotations up to 2005, when EUFOR took over the Bosnia mission without US forces. A small US task force rotations remained thru 2007 to follow up on the PIFWC situation.

Plenty of timeframe for Belgian armor in former Yugoslavia with the BELUKOS missions in Kosovo including Scimitar and Leopard 1A5BE!

Typical for al those missions, you have to be there observe/report and waiting for orders. Kill the time doing nothing. Nice photo, know the people it was my Bn there.

Following with interrest! Served as a signaller for the Dutch army at Belbat in Beli Manastir from September 92 to May 93 and have enjoyed my time with the Belgians and Luxembourgers.
