This is the Hobby Boss 1/35 kit of the Hägglunds (now BAE) CV90 version used by Norway. Norway was the first export customer of the CV90 IFV. It is, as its name suggests, equipped with a 30mm Bushmaster chaingun.
The model is built more or less out of the box. I did however mask and paint the markings to portray a vehicle used in Afghanistan. The tow cables are also added, since the kit did not have any.

Still waiting.. by Erik Gustavsson

He who waits for something good.. by Erik Gustavsson
..always waits for too long.
Some lucky people have already begun receiving their HobbyFan Pbv 302’s. This unlucky b***rd is still waiting for the box to finish it´s journey from Hong Kong to Sweden.
Whenever it arrives, however, you can be sure that it will be reveiwed on this site.

It has been rumored for some time that the CV9040C, the up armoured version of the Strf 9040 that has seen international service in Liberia and currently in Afghanistan was on the way in 1/35.
Apparently Hobby Boss is showing off some cad-renderings at the Nuremberg Spielwarenmesse, as Kjell Svensson is tipsing us about here.
Sven’s next project by Erik Gustavsson
Just wanted to give the heads up on the latest project from the PW author, Sven Young. A tank trailer for his splendid M3 scout car in swedish kongo-service. I hope we’ll see both of them here soon. See the progress on the IPMS Stockholm website.
New site feature – Notices by Erik Gustavsson
