Got hold of a little ZPU-1 kit from model-miniature, came with some nice little bits to make up a scenic base.

Every time I see this topic and your painting, I can't believe these are 20mm and not 28mm  :-* Stunning work as usual!

Thanks for all the kind comments guys, much appreciated. I've got a box full of the new Under Fire RAR to get stuck into, which I'll post in my Fire Force thread. Plus I got hold a 1/72 Hunter FGA9 to languish in my box of 'one day I'll get around to this'. Currently also contains an MI-8 and a DC3.

Came across Friendship models , interesting mix of bits. I picked up the modern British maintenance sets & the insurgents. Apparently some of these (possibly all) were sculpted by Tony Boustead, same chap who did the Under Fire Rhodesians etc etc. So they should blend in/make good conversion fodder. Also picked up a nice resin stowage/load to drop into a plastic truck kit I picked up from eBay. All this lot will hopefully end up looking somewhat SADF.







Having a go at turning T-shirts into shirts with collars.


Start of some assault vests.


Started to have a go at a bunker, turning out to be rather large, the Mk2 will be about half the size.

Got hold of some more little blokes to chop up; mixed bag of Zanla, RAR, RLI & militia from Under Fire, plus a pack of MACV SOG from Elhiem, mainly after the chap with the M79, but will have a go at converting the backpacks and already swapped out the CAR15 for an FN/R1.
Got enough bodies to get two chopper (Puma) loads of troops, plus a small recce team.





Couple of random vehicles for their adversaries. Just experimenting with rust...

Cheers Von lucky, glad you like it. I sort of finished with this: BTR-60PB



Think I might need to take a stiff brush to some of that pigment...
