28mm (1/50th scale) Canadian Army LAV III

Just a quick post today ... the first 3D renders of the Canadian LAV III are in and I thought I would share them.  Still making some adjustments but the turret will be removable and the tires will be separate.  The model is 1/50th scale so that it matches up with my Empress Miniatures vehicles.

Once this is done I'll be uploading to Shapeways and getting 3 or 4 printed off (since the G-Wagen came out so good).  Then these, along with the G-Wagens and Leopard 2's will be off to the paint table.



Will have the Canadians deployed on the tabletop in no time :-)

  1. Very cool. Have you seen the new 30mm Strykers? Might a be a good add one for US forces in Germany.

    4. Yep and it's controlled from the same station inside the ball that the old 50cal was. They are also working on getting a version armed with Javelins.
