    I think your neighbor is safe. This is a question that has gone unanswered by the 1:6 companies for a while now.

    We all want it, but doesn't look like it will happen any time soon.

    I think we need a few more SEAL gunners, SEAL UDT divers, SEAL HALO jumpers, SEAL UDT diver/HALO jumpers, SEAL mountaineers, SEAL VBSS, SEAL VBSS in cold weather uniform(???), SEAL "night ops" jumpers(static line & MFF versions), 'nam SEALs, SEAL DEVGRU, SEAL CQB, SEAL "night ops" CQB, SEAL riverine ops, SEAL in ACU....

    After those figures have been done at least two or three times each, then maybe there will be room for a Canadian figure to be made.

    Brits and Aussies and even the Germans have gotten the modern 1/6 treatment. But, it seems like US military stuff is what sells and I guess the companies would rather take a sure bet with most collectors than gamble that something new and unproven is a wise investment for 100 bucks a pop.

    While the voices have cried long and hard for some CADPAT clad soldiers, they seems to have fallen on deaf ears.

    My guess is that creating an accurate, modern Candian solider is not easy. The uniform and Canadian-specific gear is not readily available to manufacturers for work from. And it would require almost 100% new gear since a Canadian soldier is camo'ed from head to toe. Not much in the way of OD or tan.

    That means two things-- you can't re-use Canadian figure parts for other figures-- other than more Canadian figures. And, if your first figure is a bust, then you just flushed all the new gear and R&D right down the toilet.

    But, there's always hope. A slim hope-- but hope none the less.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!! Canadians in CADPAT HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

    But seriously freeloader, get in line. I think we should harass Soldier Story to make us one. I'd personally buy a case of them. There are a few of us who have started into some serious Canadian Soldier custom, and it's not an easy task. The only piece of gear that's close to anything else is the Diemaco C7/8 and that is still different than your average M4/16. Drop me a PM sometime and we can compare notes, or just dream out loud. I have a few pieces of actual Canadian gear, and a small library of ref materials, if you need any pictures.

    Cadpat..huh, I think you'd have better luck getting some woodland marpat and customize it a bit, Or if you were to dye an ACU uniform you might get something like this:



    it'd be a streatch, but it might do until some company finially decides to make one.

    Temperate MARPAT is closer, but still not the same for TW CADPAT. AR CADPAT is lighter than Desert MARPAT, but still not the same. In a pinch, you could use them. ACU would be totally off, even dyed, as ACU only has 3 colours and CADPAT has 4 colours.

    The Cadpat license is owned by someone and he ain't letting it go. Or so i understand.

    Ummmmm...... the Trademark, pattern, R&D, etc.... are all owned by Department of National Defense, Our military, and the stuff is made under licence and is controlled. The aftermarket tactical gear, wannabe gear and airsoft stuff is the same camo pattern, but the material is different and has different cuts, and treatments to the material. That's why it's especially hard to find AR CADPAT right now. All the real stuff is currently being used up for the troops. And when they get home they are required to turn it back in, or so I was told from a friend in the CF.

    I wish all my 1/6 stuff was not packed for moving because I have a couple of the Power Team Marpat uniforms, which I think look pretty close to Arrid Cadpat...I used one for a JTF2 sniper...I will get pics as soon as I get moved in and unpacked in a month or so.

    Here is the thing, a lot of these companies make small runs of 300 to 500 already. It seems if we could get enough people here or on other boards to agree to buy a certain amount they could sell an entire run of them. I would love to see a CARDPAT or Polish figure.

    I remember someone did a CARDPAT by dying some BBI woodland Marpat here a while back.

    Re: Canadian CADPAT uniform in 1:6?

    I'd love to see some CADPAT uniform, along with just about anything else. Variety is the spice of life so I love to see different patterns in the small scale. I mean there are already some odd camo patterns they did make so it would seem to make sense, but what do I know. If they make it though, I will buy it.

    Re: Canadian CADPAT uniform in 1:6?

    You say that like its so easy (no pun intended). But I have a hard time with a real button and there is no way I'd be able to sewn anything as complex as a 1/6 uniform, though I wish I could. So the best I could probably do is a 1/6 scale CADPAT dishdash at this point. Maybe I can get one of the tailors on base to do it though, where would you even get fabric printed with the pattern at?

    The man is correct. The 1:1 pattern is owned and licensed by the Canadian Department of Defense, however as far as I know 1 person has actually gone through proper channels and has been granted the legitimate license by the Canadian Department of Defense to reproduce CADPAT in 1:6 ... and the last I heard he really wanted to make it happen and was trying to get one of the big boys on board. Granted that was more than 2 years ago when I was last informed but why none of the big boys have stepped up to make it happen is anyone's guess.

    Re: Canadian CADPAT uniform in 1:6?

    AMEN!! I might even pony up the $100 or so for a Modern Canadian Soldier figure!!!

    Or, what the hell, I think there still might be a WWII German squad that has not been covered by one of the manufacturers!! Sorry, more then a little pent up frustration here!!!!!

    Perhaps one reason this never happened was that he could have been trying to get this done through Merit Int'l. (But that's just pure conjecture on my part.)

    Re: Canadian CADPAT uniform in 1:6?

    Another reason for lack of CADPAT is probably due to economics: not large enought market to soak it all up.

    With the other patterns, you can reuse the cloth for different variants of figures to recoup your cost.

    Are we going to see CADPAT soldier, CADPAT spec ops, CADPAT divers, CADPAT snipers, CADPAT night ops, CADPAT CQB and etc... (just replace SEAL with CADPAT) to help the manufacturers recoup the fabric cost?

    That is a dilemna for anyone considering such a project, even for the 1/6 license holder.

    All good points Valken, but then I think about the three Australian figures produced by BBI. They were all snapped up and are now very difficult to find. My point is that despite the relatively small size of the 1:1 forces represented, the figures were well received and, as far as I can tell, a commercial success. I feel that Canadian forces would be as good a sell if not better. Especially if the proper long gun was produced along with the figure.

    Oo, the proper long gun comment here's gave me thought. Not sure if this is what you meant Steve O. but if the big companies think they need a marketing angle to sell a CADPAT soldier, why not do the sniper spotter team that set the (new) record for the longest confirmed kill? Or at least 'gear accurate' figures based on them if they can't get the likeness permission from the 2 vets.

    Re: Canadian CADPAT uniform in 1:6?

    At one of the WOHs, a second individual told me he had access to the pattern, and plans to make it (temperate). That's been about 4 years ago now, and nada.

    I thought a two-uniform set would be great, with or without figures. Something like the recent Soldier Story Bundeswehr set, or the Reload Action French desert suit or VN tiger stripes.
    It goes without saying that a fully-equipped Anaconda sniper team would be the cat's jammies.

    I have seen a Canadian female artist produce temperate region CADPAT figures, but nothing in AR.

    It's probably the same guy. Sad but my intel's most likely just 2 years slower than yours. I need to read from your field manual. :o)
