Large time frame is a good idea.

Yes!
Canada fights hard whenever they fight, yet don’t get a lot of love.

I would do one for sure, I have the Takom Leopard C2 Mexas or I might go with a Tasca Firefly and do a Sherbrooke Fusiliers from Normandy. The start date would work well for me also.

On the subject there seemed to be a “interesting” discussion about Canadian navy subjects over on the Fine scale forums… :roll_eyes:

Almost makes me want to make a Canadian sub just in spite of everyone… :wink:

Just ordered my kit and some after market.
I will be building a Leopard 2A6M CAN with Barracuda.
I dont want to spend hours building PE slat armor so I will use the fairly nice plastic ones.


I didnt want to spend $70+ for the Barracuda so I ordered a set of AFV club Barracuda I will add myself.

Hopefully this will be a fun build.

Hi, never done anything like a campagn before but I do have a Trumpeteer kit of a AVGP Grizzley… could I participate with that, just doing a simple build of the kit as it is, BOB I think it’s called?
(Here in Holland a BOB is someone who doesn’t drink because he still has to drive… )

Welcome Bert. Anything Canadian, so the Grizzly fits right in.

Most people call building ‘Out Of the Box’ OOB, but BOB is good too.

It is funny how slang terms come about. In Australia, a ‘Bob’ is a reference to a pre-decimal coin called a shilling (same as in England). Whilst the coin is only of collector’s interest these days, there are us older Aussies that still use it in slang terms when talking about something being low value or of little importance. “I don’t give two bob”, " as silly as a two bob watch", etc.

Count me in! I think I’ll have quite a few kits to put into this. LAV’s, TUA’s, and Leos!
