Hi Gang,
I had yesterday a closer encounter with a CV9035NL. Nice track BTW. Is there a kit of the Dutch IFV available?

The Dutch version has a raised rear section so the Danish version is probably closest but there may still be differences ...

HobbyBoss 83823:





Wikipedia says:
"CV90 Mk III

The Mk III variant of the CV90 is a further development of the CV90 Mk II. The areas that have undergone most development compared to Mk II are lethality, fightability, electronic architecture, survivability and mobility. The weapon system has been upgraded to a 35/50 mm Bushmaster III cannon with an integrated muzzle ammunition programmer and a number of different firing scenarios depending on target setup. The crew station design provides the gunner and commander with a continuous eye-on-target engagement feature (do not need to remove head from eye-piece to see and operate equipment). The electronic architecture has been further upgraded for Mk III to be completely digitized. The mobility improvements, in the field of upgraded suspension and power to weight ratio, was performed to handle the increased gross vehicle weight. The improved survivability was mainly in the areas of mine protection and top attack. The horizontal protection has been designed in similar ways as to the other marks of CV90, i.e. appliqué systems. The first variant of the Mk III, the Mk III a, was delivered to The Netherlands and Denmark. The second, most modern Mk IIIb variant, is currently under delivery for Norway. "

Maybe you only need to find suitable decals somewhere ...

At least there's an AM set of "Hessian tape" for the CV9035NL from Black Dog (to be used with the Hobby Boss kit) :

The biggest mod I noted is the new roof over the fighting compartment. The Dutch Army vehicles have a single round hatch instead of the two part hatches. Switching the Coax MG 3 into a MAG 58 will be a piece of cake. With the announcement of the LVKV 9040 by HB, I hope a CV9035NL and Schützenpanzer 2000 is close.

Did some research. Main difference between Dutch and Danish:
Dutch: Round hatch on rooftop
Dutch: Different turret stowage basket
Dutch: Enlarged side skirts

So now the BIG question is:
Wait and hope that a kit appears
OR
do some scratcbuilding and convert a Danish CV-9035.

Just started a conversion, see how long it will take to the HB announcement.

@MarcB I have the book, but it gives only an overview on the non-Swedish variants.

Doesn't anybody proof read the box art work anymore ?
A "Swidish CV9035 IFV". I also have a Tiger Model's Revolution I Leopard 2 with the German Flag upside down box art.

I can live with the spastic proofreading as long as the plastic is correct


Aaaaannnnnnd in this case the plastic isn't correct.
The road wheels (whole suspension) needs to be repositioned. The Academy 9040 can be used as a template.

The cv9035nl is quite different, roof rear compartment, turret hatches, roof, radio, very different stowage baskets. Very different side skirts. Left rear light unit. Coax armour plate. And rest already mentioned.

I am hoping for a kit. Please please please Dear hobbyboss. Such a cool vehicle.

On a side note Estonia has bought 44 second-hand CV9035NL's from the Netherland in 2016-2018...

Hans,

I don't understand.
The book covers the Dutch version,which you want to build.

This might help as well:

Using the Black dog set will save you some work.
