It's been a while but this build is on track and in the painting stages. So, just to whet your appitites, it's either going to be a SWiss AF machine OR South African.

I agree, it does, which is why I'm still toying with that and the Swiss idea. I DO have a hankering for the Swiss idea though, It is a bit more 'out there' I think.

and we know the SAAF would realy show the world how to use em properly ;D
I always hope for the best.
Unfortunately,
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Size (of the stash) matters.

Right, my Hind is finally finished, but piccies will be delayed as my camera is playing up.

But, heres a description - 2 tone sand/mid green cammo scheme that is wrap around. After much mulling, I finally went with SAAF as the Hind would be great for conter insurgency operations etc.

One thing I like about the Hobby boss kit is that the armament can be switched around thanks to the stores being push on.

Picrues will forthcoming once I beat my camera into obedience!!!!


Chris, I'm hoping that this will still be eligable for the memorial build, if not let me know.

You could always add parts from the ' Chopper push bike' popular in the 1970s.
