A while back the ModernAfricanBushwars yahoo group ran a quick competition- first to answer three questions correctly wins 50 Euros at Hobby Den model store. I saw the email whilst sat in my favourite cafe in town, fortunately the questions were on the Rhodesian War (the conflict in Africa I know most about) so I rattle off my answers and luckily little old me won.
Deciding what to get was a nice experience and today I picked up my parcel from the Post Office.
Hobby Den’s own range of resins are very nice and they do fill some useful gaps in the market- they come highly recommended from me.
Their website can be found here: http://www.thehobbyden.com/
On the topic of URLs the yahoo group can be found here: https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/ModernAfricanBushwars/info – worth joining for access to the photo albums alone.
You might be wondering what I plan to do with my new resins..?
Well, the 3 Unimogs will be painted up to be added to my Rhodesian Bush War collection- though I’ll need to find some crew for them, the M1117 will be a sand colour for service in Iraq ( they were mostly used by the Military Police for convoy protection duties and I have been planning a game along those lines for ages), the M47 will be painted in Croat colours as I’ve got a decal sheet with a nice scheme on that I want to replicated and as for the Shorland I’m not so sure, I’m a big fan of them as they are basically armoured Landrovers with a turret on, I may do it in a Syrian camo scheme or possible a plain grey.
Typing that last paragraph made me realize I’ve a complete lack of focus as I’ve covered 4 different projects there. If I could concentrate on one thing at once I’d probably get a lot more done but where would the fun be in that.
