Nice! Of course I see that this is another attempt to bankrupt me by forcing me to buy a 1/48 Pucara or two… or three.

That you knew I had just done last year’s tax return is worrying.  lol

You mean the Kittyhawk kit? It’s had rave reviews; vaguely interested, not nearly early enough for me however (Tempests and Meteors about the most modern…).


Edit: Kinetic is the kit maker.

Lovely fellow, that.

And the guy with the 203 looks like he let off too long an auto burst.  His barrel is drooping a bit... :D

There’s a pill for that these days apparently.. ;)

Very nice. While I understand the benefits/ requirements of casting, I suppose that like most people I’d prefer figures without separate arms where possible. That said, I like these and look forward to seeing more.

Methinks these chaps may see service against my late 80s/early 90s Soviets/Russians.  They are kitted out in cold weather(ish) kit too.
Paul, please tell me these SAS fellas will have some kind of AT capability...

And here is another one with a LAW.



Its been 'interesting' reading some of the comments regarding these figures across the various places that I have shown them. Mainly regarding the weapons and the belief that the SAS/ SBS were only limited to UK weapons. To those in the know they obviously were not. A friend of mine was the gunnery officer on HMS Antrim during the Falklands War and, as he often laughed, 'commanded' the detachment that went to South Georgia and he said they walked up the gangplank carrying Addidas bags full of weapons of every description as they simply emptied the stores just incase.   

the only weapon that I cannot find them using is a Suppressed Stirling SMG so if anyone has a reference it would be interesting to know. (The Argentinian SF did of course use them.)
