Anyone know of someone who build this conversion?? And what about references?? I found some pics on the net but not a lot on the APC version.If someone can help...
I'm in preparation of building the conversion using the LAV mortar kit of italeri as a base .
Yep, the Italeri LAV Mortar Carrier is the best starting point.
As for references on the Bison APC, externally they aren't much different at all from other variants - in reality, the APC variant came first, and the others were (for the most part) conversions. The interior of the Bison was designed to be semi-convertable to other variants. Further to this, each vehicle may have internal stowage differences, based on unit or crew preferences.
I know that both Tom Rea and Paul Fredenburg have made Bisons, and Tom had an article online (somewhere!) that covered his conversion. Perhaps they can provide some tips and hints.
Once you get going on the conversion using generic references, perhaps some specific questions on particular aspects or details could help in narrowing down references.
