    Hi Guys,

    This one has been languishing in a box for sometime, but I have finally got around to making a start. Still a long way to go, the main colours are there and will need some shade and highlights adding, as I go. Painting in acrylics.

    Scale is 1/9, sculpt by me and AK47 by Reedees. This is currently held in place with blutack, but will have a sling added, eventually. This is not meant to represent anything specific, more as a generic figure from one of the multitude of conflicts in Africa at that time.

    Thanks for looking in,

    I used the Osprey books to get a general feel for the subject, but this all came from my head! I suppose having watched event on the news over the years, these things tend to stay in the subconscious. Ive not tried to copy any particular camo pattern, or specific unit, just gone for the impression....(y)
