More AK47 Helicopters!



Well, you can't have enough of them really...I suppose. This one is the latest edition to my pile of 1/100th scale chopper kits and diecast gunships. I had one of these years ago for my Colonial Settlers but it got crunched by accident. I'm glad I found this one on Ebay, as they're hard to track down and perfect for 1960's era Africa. I know that you can now get a 3D printed version of the Alouette III in 1/100th and an expensive 15mm metal kit, so I could have gone down that route, but I like building plastic kits so this one's fine for me. I don't have a use for it yet but when has that ever been a problem?

  2. Just ordered four (4) from Shapeways (3D), so I'll see soon how they look and paint up. Plan on using them for a Colonist Army using AK47 rules. Using Rhodesia as an model for the army, so looking to add a DC-3 (smile) for paratroopers.
