Now wouldn't it be a Plot Twist if Vietnam (who has ARVN legacy Bulldogs) put in a tender for Taiwan's Bulldog fleet and did they're own 21st century upgrade?

I've currently got one in my 'to-do' box along with new tracks (which is packed because I have to move AGAIN) and I'm tossing up doing the following for my 2000AD post WW3 builds:

- M41 w/ M103 105 mm Howitzer from the Spanish M108 SPGs. This will be done up as a direct support SPG for dealing with bunkers and applique armour in Spanish NATO livery.

- M41 w/ scratch-built Thyssen-Henschel 'Tanque Argentino Mediano' turret in West German* livery. Either Bundeswehr or Bundesgrenzschutz. I'm a bit unsure about this because the 105mm L7A3 cannon is four times heavier than the M32A1 76mm gun and I'm not sure if the chassis would stand the firing shock.

- Something else my fevered imagination comes up with.

(*I know, but in this scenario there's still a West Germany)

It just occurred to me the TS-90 turret of the Panhard ERC-90 might be a good fit as well

Anybody know about the diesel engine installation on IIRC the Danish rebuilds? I wondering what the engine deck and rear look like. I’ve wondered if a 1/48th M-60 engine deck would fit.

Way back in this thread I have a mockup with a Bradley turret and a  LAV-150 Commando turret and Cockerill 90mm gun, so that may work.

Attached is an image showing the rear deck of the M41DK1 conversion. The new engine is a Cummins VTA-903TR powerpack - a turbo-charged diesel V8 related to the VTA-903-T600 in upgraded Bradleys.

Thanks for that pic!
That looks like field green and black paint pattern. Gives me ideas……

I think I've got some resin Panhard Turrets (and hulls) that'd be good starting points.

Accurate Armor use to offer a conversion https://www.hlj.com/1-35-scale-danish-m41-dk1-walker-bulldog-conversion-acmc088

https://www.wargaming3d.com/product/danish-m41-dk/



Tamiya deck and resin Panhard turret for scale.  Looks like the OEM engine deck is the same as the diesel conversion above, which makes sense.

Accurate Armour still offers the M41 conversion for the Danish version: Accurate Armour Home Page > AA products > 1:35th Conversion Sets > C088 Danish M41 DK1

I hope to eventually find one of these for sale on this side of the pond instead of having to deal with the cost of shipping from the UK.

And if I can fit a LAV-150 Cockerill turret onto a Warrior;




Then there shouldn't be a problem fitting one to a M41.

Hobby Lobby (in the US) is dumping TAMIYA M41 kits for @ $16 after their 40% discount.

Everything else you can kitbash.

@PFJN might be able to burn ya a resin Cadillac Gage style turret.
