AK47 Autumn Assault [8]

I've been tied up the last couple of days with work related stuff, so much so that I haven't had time for any painting or modelling. However, I have acquired a diecast 1/100 scale  Mil Mi24 Hind for next to nothing on ebay and have been pondering the possibilities it offers as gunship support for the AK47 army.

To be honest, it's a bit hi-tech for my army surplus 1950's vintage ex-Soviet equipped dictatorship forces but, if I don't get the Mil Mi4 gunship sorted, it'll fill the gap very well. I only need to assemble it, give it a quick undercoat and three stage drybrush, then do a bit of detailing before it's ready for action.

  2. Oh yes! Very nice.

    It could always belong to a higher tech Merc team, brought in by a toppling Government to try and stem the tide. I seem to recall Sandline used to run a few of these for example

  3. Savimbi bought few of them, and his UNITA vas very vintage in other aspects of equipment :>

    So there is no problem.
    Soviet support produced strange anachronistic occurrences when their cutting edge stuff rode to battle along T 34..

  4. There was the Hind flew by a merc that supported the British in Siera Leone, so I say go ahead.
