I recently started the modeling for my first mod: The Warthog currently used by the british army.

Next item on the agenda will the the RPG cage which I intend to attach via a proxy.

The mid pivot point is not correct in the slightest, its taken from the BV206 until i can find a decent picture of it.

Thanks for the support guys :)

New pivot point in the works, cant find any good pictures of it though so this will have to go until I can get a better look at it.

And also, if any of you want to get in contact with me for any reason i'd recommend catching me on the 4th Dragoons teamspeak, i'm pretty much always on there: 85.236.100.27:30257

Try searching or if that fails, posting a topic over at the plain military forum under questions and requests, the guys there have more reference at their fingertips than you can really imagine, and they're a very helpful bunch. Done a quick search myself on their forums and dug up:

That's for starters :) I see you've applied over at RKSL for the british effort, so we can sort out a ref topic over there. Our resident reference monkey is on holiday for a couple of weeks, but once he's back I reckon he'll be able to help with some more images.

St Kinetics who make the bronco have a pdf brochure with a low res pic of the linkage:

Messy, the other lads and I will help if we can. I'll see what i can dig out of my own ref drive for you.

You should have UKAF access now too.

Thanks very much for those photos, they helped a treat with getting the details right.

Tracks are now on the vehicle and i've scaled it down a bit because it was dwarfing anything in its path including tanks and buildings.
