Don't suppose there's an Strv 103 (commonly known as the S-tank) and the Pbv 302 APC anywhere in your plans?

That would be good.

The Swedes used another tank at the time ...

Not going to happen.

Just pointing out that if you go with an S-Tank, you'd need a Centurion and a Pansarbandvagn of some description.

Aye, I know. We already have an Strv 101/2, and the T-55 (Polish) and/or T-62 (Soviets) that they were likely to face.

Although I don't think the Centurions and the S-tanks were fielded in the same companies, so you could do just one or the other.

Centurions and S-tanks weren't even in the same battalions. But they did have mixed tank/APC companies, so unless the PBv-301 or Pbv-302 is available, it's a mute point,

The major problem with Swedish kit is that (1) there were/are  neutral = no wars and (2) did not export a lot of hardware to other nations. These factors severely curtail the potential sales of a model and the argument for commissioning an expensive sculpt.

Rumour Control believes that 1960s/70s  era BAOR kit will soon be appearing to keep the Centurions, Landrovers and Falklands Brits company.  Accompanied perhaps (?) by some Warsaw Pact AFVs - especially if the said vehicles were deployed in the Arab Israeli wars. 

Good news for African Bush War fraternity.  The Korean range summer dress paints up well as Third World forces.

If you had variants with berets rather than bush hats I reckon they'd be great for UK forces in warmer, drier, climes.

From 1954 onwards (introduction of SLR) - well say 1958 for the web - you have the Falkland Paras -  but point about warmer climes is taken.
Phil, Leon and I discussed the beret, but it is the bush hat that was worn in Korea - and it is primarily the Korean range.
