Speeding into view: the Spartan Milan Compact Turret (MCT).

Box set that can build into four Spartan MCT, four Striker anti-tank vehicles, or four Spartan with Blowpipe SAM operator.
Nice all-in-all, bit of a clunky effort at a GPMG, but nice little models. :D

Battlefront have announced that the Brits will be getting reinforcements in the new year, including Challenger tanks and Warrior IFV.
I have, however, become attached to my Chieftain and FV432, thank you very much: old school-like my music taste and liver condition. ;)

Lynx with TOW missiles.
Nice model, usual decal problems, Soviet tanks beware! :twisted:

And a pic of the actual Lynx XZ206.

However, a cautionary tale for prospective helo owners.
Battlefront are charging £22 for two Mi-24 Hind-D. Revell are selling a model kit 1/100 scale version for £7 for one and, at first glance, the Revell offering looks more like the thing, particularly with it`s clear canopy and cockpit detail.

True, you would have to find your own pilots, but the Revell kit is cheaper and better IMHO.
In 15mm (or 1/100 scale) Revell also do a Huey, a AH-1 Cobra gunship (Nam era), AH-64 Apache, UH-60 Blackhawk, and a Navy UH-60 Seahawk.

Nae Cold War Brits...yet.

I know back when I started my Nam stuff the Huey kit was like hens teeth, although now they are easier to get, but it would mean changing all my helo's as I'm not keen on mix and match.
I do like that Hind kit you have their.

Still haven`t started my Nam lot yet- a mixture of grunts, TANKS, and helos, which is why I`m starting to collect Hueys.

The pic doesn`t show the nice panel details on the Hind, which are also much nicer and proportional than on my Battlefront Lynx. I`m strongly hinting towards this year`s project as doing some Czechs for the Warsaw Pact (to rami with my Brits) and these Revell Hind look like being unit number one. ;)

Although, Battlefront have announced that they are doing an `Oil Wars` book bringing-in the Israelis, Iraqis, and Iranians, and the Merkavas look too good to resist.

Wallet-hammering time! Bah! :evil: :evil: :evil:

Ahem... I thought this was a Brits thread!

Anyway - I'm printing a Hind to see what it comes out like. Got my Fate of a Nation book yesterday and I'm afraid to say the rules look mind numbingly boring..... Made for the mentally challenged and post 40K muppets (same thing?). I do have an arab force though so I'll still give it a sho't - you never know - the rate my grey cells are deteriorating these days it might be all I'm capable of.

Once again, the ingenuity of Tommy Atkins shines through, by jove, as the Brits drive-up in their FV432 Mortar carrier; better bring a brolly, there`s a forecast for rain! :D
