Here is a link to some photos that I had posted earlier that show an complete LAVA1 with all of the retrofitted items. Some items weren''t pictured for security. This LAVA1 Retrofit and New Built A2's will look the same, with the major changes being internal items. There will be some differences externally but not many. LAVA1 Retrofit Tanks Andy

Thanks Andy. ASLAV's have them too. From your info I see why Trumpeter are yet to have them - seeing they've only done the '25'. Cheers, Paul

Ok guys, I just got through talking to a bunch of people in the right places and the official terminology that should be applied to these vehicles is LAVA2(Legacy = retrofitted vehicles) and the LAVA2 purpose built brand new vehicles. Like I said earlier the major differences between the two will be internal to the hull. Tanks Andy

Hi Guys, Dumb question time, How different is the LAV A2 to the LAV 3. would it take a lot of work to convert it? externally only. (NZ army operates LAV 3s) Cheers Chris

Once I get all of the unique Aussie mods together. From what I've heard Mouse House is doing some? Tanks Andy

As Gary said, the LAV Generation III and the older LAV-25 are very different. Here is a side-by-side comparison to demonstrate. Best bet is to start w/a Stryker hull and either the Real Model or the Mouse House Enterprises conversion sets for a NZ LAV Gen III.
