Thanks for the pics Saul. Any idea why the BMP is black? I seems to me it would be an oven in there.

I like it. I might even be able to find something to build from South Africa, Egypt or Libya.

Does the build imply the model served in Africa or belonged specifically to an African unit? Just want to specify as you have me intrigued ;)

Note the Spanish, Portuguese, and French T-6 Tomcats? Any subject that served, or did their thing, in Africa.
