Rapid Fire! 20mm Gulf War - Some new Iraqi helicopters

The mighty French SA321 Super Frelon was also used by Iraq. Not much is knowned of its actions during Desert Storm, with one at least being destroyed. A few years before this aircraft got distinction in the famous Tanker War with Iran thanks to its Exocet missiles.

The model is a ready made Altaya with painted Iraqi symbols (and, pardonnez moi, erased French ones, of course...).

The other addition are the home-made pilots I told you about a few posts ago.

The other new member of the Iraqi Aircraft family is this Altaya Mil-Mi 4. I only applied the sand camouflage, corrected the under carriage blue colour to the Iraqi version and painted the Iraqi markings leaving the original Russian green colour to be showned. And two home made pilots, of course.


  1. Wow! These are done neatly and very fast. Even with interir. Not to mention the other projects. How do you manage to work so fast?

  2. By doing very little domestic work and also by not sleeping too much :)
