Can someone plonk a LAV-25 turret on to a M-114 C&R?  Curious how much it would look like a M800.

Graeme: A Delco turret very much plonked onto an M114 C&R. It looks a bit awkward but, I think would be 'do-able'.

The straight-sided M114 C&R was 2.33 m wide (versus 2.5 m for the sloped-sided LAV-25/Coyote). But, the Delco turret ring is something like 1.5 m so it should fit.

Thanks!

That's a bit bigger than I thought it'd be on a M114.

Have you got a Marder 1A3/1A5 turret you could scale on to the M114?
 
Edit - removing the rear turret basket makes it a little more proportionate. I'm assuming the 114 would be converted to rear engine drive

Ja aber ... she looks a bit top-heavy  :o

Still, the overall effect is very similar to the Lynx II C&R that I've been procrastinating on. Thanks for the nudge  :smiley:

Yep, that helps.

Include the Milan ATGM on that turret too to give some additional firepower:

Good idea. And that begs the question: Is Graeme's intended mission still C&R?

BTW: I forgot to mention that the Marder turret I plonked on was actually pinched from Didi's 1/35 build of the Jordanian 1A3:

If anyone is interested, I'd be interested in some Ju87 profiles in RAAF Pacific schemes.

Hi Greg,

I'll have a stab at some for you.  Need to finish a load of profiles I'm doing for the MR build, but can probably start on these this week

Okay.  I used the Wirraway as my "template", so I've gone with a variety of schemes.  I also thought the closed gunners canopy didn't look right on an Allied aircraft, where open gun positions or turrets were the norm, so I've made a few changes.


Malaya 1941


Rabaul 1942



New Guinea 1943


Training Ops Australia 1944


Gunnery School Australia 1944


Combat Ops Pacific Islands 1944


Tank buster Borneo 1945

Cheers

Quick and very dirty.

Graeme: I based the proportions on a 1/72nd scale CF-116D forward fuselage mated to a 1/100th scale A-10 wings and aft-end. (You didn't mention tailplanes but I've assumed that you wanted the Warthog's twin tails as well).
