I tried to find that tank on US and Canadian Ebay, to no avail.
Now you have to bring up old wounds?
Is there a gold base under the red?
No, it just photographs that way for some reason. In person, the gold highlight is not even visible. The candy apple red has a silver base coat.
P.S. - I too tried to find a Canadian tank with these colors several times in the past. The guy who did the paint was extremely reasonable -- had I known of him sooner I would have had this done a long time ago.
