    Thank-you, greatly, Tanelorn! I'll just sit back and be patient for the Super Tucano and not poke you about it (too much :p )...

    Well if you're feeling really generous, our next step was to take these and assemble a full roster in Namibian kit (or Angolan, since no-one's done an official Namibian set).

    But between you and Erika, I have everything I could have reasonably asked for. :)

    @Tanelorn: all of your recent F-86's and MiG-15's reminds me of back when I was 12 or 13, I was doing those model airplane kits, and the 2nd and 3rd I ever did (after a Sopwith Camel) were an F-86 and a MiG-15 that were packaged together in the same box as a "dueling pair."

    Erika, could you please try your hand at two more armoured vehicles I'm aren't out there, please? I need the North Korean Pokpung-ho MBT, an apparent mix of source elements from various Soviet and Chinese tanks that has been photographed on military parades on various North Korean national holidays, and the GCT-155mm armoured mobile howitzer on an AMX-30 chassis that seems to be the mainstay of mobile heavy artillery in the French Army currently. I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advance!

    The full roster:



    Modified from the Angolan camo, but Namibian uniforms are close enough to fudge it. :p
    Further variants may ensue depending on what we want/need, but with this I have a basic template to mix and match gear and poses.

    Petty much all Balkan front Mig 21 Fishbed/ Chengdu J7 variants and camo schemes, with appropriate insignia and service dates where I could find them, bar post Yugo states (yet).
    Albanian, Bulgarian, Hungarian, Romanian and Yugoslavian fighters.
    @techumseh To answer your previous question, Mig21 was the first Squadron Signal series book I bought back in my modeling days, and Mig23 was my first Osprey...

    Well, i turned the AMX-30 into a GCT-FUBAR (temp. placeholder?), made attempts at the Songun-Ho MBT, a few Pugpunk-hoes, Generic Upgraded T-62, Various T-62/T-72 Hybrids(T-72 Suspension on T-62 Hull, some w/T-72 Turrets, more failed Pokpung-ho's ) and some attempts at the IT-1 Missile tank(a Squashed T-62 armed with missiles instead of guns)

    @Thorvald of Lym Angolan Mig21 paintjobs. The Mig21 F-13 is conjectural, since I cant find any photos, but only 8 machines came from Soviet stocks & they were flown by Soviet pilots. The MFs came from Cuban stocks and were initialy flown by cuban pilots. The colours and insignia are correct but the pattern for the -bis needs some revisiting. All were withdrawn by 2007 but some -bis are on reserve.
    As for the Namibians, great job :goodjob:. Note however that instead of the US style Woodland the Namibian infantry uses French style Lizard camo and their paramilitary "police" uses an orange version of the British DPM (they used second hand British DPM uniforms early on).
    @Broken_Erika Have you checked this site about Noth Korean machines? :http://www.massimotessitori.altervista.org/armoursite/nkindigenoustanks/index.html
    It has loads of pictures from multiple angles. The biker you made is my favourite. :love: I think the Sagaie you made is very useful for scenarios too. Will you consider making an AMX 10RC? I have made one too previously, but I really don't like it. It is like an AMX 10P on wheels with an AMX40-ish turret.

    Duly noted. I remember a lizard set lurking around somewhere so I'll look into revised uniforms.

    I don't know where you guys get the patience for all those variations. :crazyeye:
