Yes I am starting small! Just a single 6mm (1/300th Scale) vehicle. A Mig 17 (fresco in Nato identification) in Egyptian markings circa 1967.
The vehicle model is By "Heroics and Ross" while the flight stand is by "Frontline". I am sticking in the desert for my main project this challenge but no longer WW1 Arab Revolt so I will not be painting Camels. Instead I am coming more up to date with a war I can vaguely remember. Actually I cannot I think I remember the 73 war!
Anyway this should get me off the mark with just a couple of points. But out of the blocks is out of the blocks. This starts the making of my United Arab Republic force for battles in the Sinai. I will be working on the ground forces more than the air forces but with a simple silver finish and markings this was just too easy not to start with.
Nothing like buzzing the Pyramids in a Mig17! Nice job Clint!
I have a faint recollection of the newscasts of the Yom Kippur War (I was quite young back then). I remember it being quite a shock to the West to the battering the Israelis received in the first few days of the conflict (and in retrospect how close we came to the brink of nuclear war). What rules will you be using for this project?
