Cheers chaps… Lost the will to carry on a bit with this one. The IBG kit sapped my will to live a little…

Ah some kits do that to a fella. Dragon Tiger I's and RMP's Staghound in my case.
Lovely finish :)

I have a resin kit from Czechoslovakia that was a real pain, none of the ultra fragile parts fit.
Superb work Piers, love the Otter!

The beauty of the model notwithstanding, I understood that the Canadian Otter wasn't used by Canadian forces. If you search for 'CMHQ141' that should bring up the equipment report for Jan-Dec44. Page 59 states that 'the standard light reconnaissance car in the Canadian Army was the Humber III'. It mentions a few Otters with the RCASC, but nothing for the RCE , which is what the '51' signifies I think?

There you go…oddly enough the Canadian Field Sqn/Coy WE actually says MkIII LRC, which is an unusual level of detail as WEs normally just give a generic vehicle type. LRCs unfortunately don't feature on the few AFV returns I've seen as they were classed as B vehicles, despite having armour (same as carriers).
