Service Publications has announced a new book coming next fall, and it is probably one the best known Canadian Tanks. It also just happens to one my personel favorite tanks.
The Ram tank was designed and build in Canada, so it seems fit that Service Publications, a Canadian publishing company has announced the upcoming release of a book on this iconic Canadian Tank. A little well known fact is that the Ram tanks were build in the Canadian Pacific Railway's Angus Shops in Montreal, Quebec. This and many more fact about this tank will be include in "Canada's Tank, The Complete Ram".

The book is written by Roger Lucy, who has written "Secret Weapons of the Canadian Army" and 8 other titles in the Weapons of War series for Service Publications. The book will be hard cover containing 200+ pages and 300+ pictures, some not seen before from the Canadian Archives.

The book at this time is scheduled for a Fall 2012 release, interested parties can email inquiries directly to Service Publications at their website.

Armorama would like to thank Clive Law from Service Publications, for informing us of this exciting release.

That is fantastic! I have always had a soft spot for the Ram and the idea of a lengthy book about it makes me very happy. This should inspire me to get off my butt and finally start building the Formations conversion that i have. Matt

Great news. I have many of their "Weopens of War" series including the three which cover the Ram and varients bit the only wet my appitate for more information. I look forward to a book with more info and especially pictures. In my experience Service Publication books and CD's provide good value at reasonable prices.

S-Model resin kit with a few modifacation to resemble on a specific tank. The track is Tamiya, I didn't have the patience to assemble the resin track in the kit

Ah, yes, I see the telltale baffle over the engine air intake that appears only on the S-Model kit. It's unfortunate that you had ot build the S-Models kit. I has so many things wrong with it, yet, unless you want to graft the aux. turret area from this kit into a Formations kit, it's the only OOB early Mk II kit available. Still, be aware that it is very, veery inaccurate in a large number of areas. Including the 6-spoke wheels they stole from the Tamiya M-3 Medium kits as well as the Tamiya Lee's too-wide hull. I have one of these kits, but I also have a Formations Ram OP (the OP was made from the very last versions of Ram produced). I will be carving out the bow gunner's position and then grafting in my S-MOdels little corner and then chucking the rest of that monstrosity away. Paul
