When I have finished build my RCAF Hawk CT-155, I have three 1/35 kits to build and they are as follows:

1) TAKOM AML-90 which will be done as the SA Eland Mk5 when they were loaned to Rhodesia in the 1970's
2) TAKOM G6 Rhino which will be done in SADF Nutria Brown as seen in the late 1980's
3) Hobbyboss Olifant Mk 1B which will be done as the Olifant Mk 2 in SANDF camo.

I now have walk round photos of all the vehicles including photos of the Eland 90 in Rhodesian service.

These are what I plan to build this year as well as 2 x 1/48 US Navy aircraft (F14A Tomcat and A-1H Skyraider).

Modifications to be done to pannier compartments in front of rear wheels (angled tops), fuel filler added, of turret, tyres changed for a set from Mirror Models which have the correct tread on them, spare wheel to be mounted on the rear top of the turret, engine bay rear and cover to be raised and if the Eland Mk 5 air intakes to be made. The engine bay cover for the Eland Mk 7 is a lot higher again (nearly flush with the sides of the wheel bays.
I used various photos from various sources to work out the mods.

See topic for photos and info: viewtopic.php?f=23&t=10032&p=121320&hilit=Eland+60#p121320
