Some time ago, an idea to build a CV9035EE IFV came into mind. I am quite sure there are no kits out there, but I did found the HobbyBoss "Swedish CV9035 IFV". Is there any way that I could convert that CV9035 into a CV9035EE? (Estonian CVs come from the Netherlands)

He HobbyBoss kit is your best (only) option. You might need to make some adjustments, but it's a decent enough starting place.

Black Dog also do a resin hessian camo set for it.

I try to build a Dutch CV9035 from HobbyBoss kit.Like Paul said, a good starting point but I needed to make several mods on hull and turret.

HobbyBoss kit despicts a Danish CV9035. Main modifications are the rear deck with crew escape hatch and modified turret stowage boxes. Not an easy job, but it can be done.

Is that Estonia's first (post 1990) tank?

According to Wikipedia, the CV9035EE is the first and only tank of the Estonian Defense Force. With only 3000 men in the Army, you can´t have tank brigades. 44 tanks plus some MRAPs is the main equipment of the army.

CV90 is not a tank. Educate yourselves

It's our first post-war tracked vehicle. Our last TANK with tank crews was the Renault FT-17 and some Mk I tanks from England xD

You guys have great kit generally speaking. The K9’s looks awesome too. I like the concept of having a small army, but taking good decisions regarding equipment procurement.

Tankograd has a book on foreign CV90's. It covers the Dutch version.

There's also this walkaround, but it doesn't cover the top: http://www.primeportal.net/apc/arnout_zaal/cv9035_mkiii/index.php?Page=1

Yeah, Thanks! We do have similar camo patterns with the Canadians as well, don't we
