I build almost all Axis and not familiar with this area. Does anyone make South African Armored Vehicles in 1/35 scale?

Takom makes a G6 Rhino SPG. Trumpeter has a Rooikat coming out in the next couple weeks and Hobbyboss announced an Olifant Mk.II. There have been a couple resin conversions for the Olifant Mk. I/IA from Cromwell (rereleased by Inside the Armor) and Baxmodels, but they are hard/impossible to find. Bax model also makes a Ratel 60 and a CASSPIR. Hopefully Takom will continue their AML series and release an Eland, but I have not heard anything.

I am hopeful that Legend would do a conversion for the AFV Club Centurion, but I am not holding my breath. Maybe if sales are good on the plastic kits coming out.

BaxMod do one in resin; you can buy this and their other SADF/SANDF vehicles from their site baxmod.co.za
