As I set up the latest competition on the AK47 Facebook Group, I thought it was only fair that I actually took part. A rummage in my kit stash turned up a few potential models but I've picked out this Tamiya 1/100th scale Fiat G-91, which is perfect as a ground attack plane.
I'm going to swap the drop tanks for a couple of rocket pods pinched from a diecast helicopter, which just happen to be a perfect fit on the pylons, but otherwise I'll just build it as it is. It's a simple kit but should look good once I've added a suitably interesting camo scheme.
These jet fighter aircraft were used by the Portuguese in Mozambique and Angola, so a very good fit for AK47 and appropriate as an air asset for a colonial settlers army, one of which I have all based up ready for painting at some point this year, although it will need some tweaking to fit.
