This post was fueled by some well done FB pages on the African modern wars.
Probably I won't be making many updates as this models were built some years by now but we can never know when the African mosquito bites again.
SU-7 from KP.
Mil-Mi 8 from KP.
Mil-Mi 24 from Airfix.
For the MPLA infantry I used ESCI modern Warsaw Pact, Vietcong and also the Spetnaz boxes. The soft hat and berets of the figures of ESCI Nato infantry and ground crew provided the adequate cover for the strong Angolan sun.
Some WWII figures and weapons were occasionally used as crew for mortars and HMGs.
Up to now 3 battalions of RF! MPLA already made. In the future probably some new rounder basing will change its appearance as I want 2s and 3s in each stand in order to move them faster on the table ( "what for you jerk, you never play!").
All figures received a strong coat of PVA as protection and it really works.
Finally a lonely Mirage III from Heller is the only thing the South African air force can use up to now.
