I thought I'd seen everything ... until I saw those two pics. Shocked

Cheers

Those armored cars are solid resin. I won an auction on ebay that had 12 WW1 armored cars (of various types by various manufacturers). I traded 6 to a friend and kept 6 for myself. I will look for the instructions to see who made those kits.

UPDATE tonight: Lots of Technicals (from our very own Sam Scott)
as well as a Rebel Tank Hunter purchased from Czechoslovakia (the Soviets apparently dont care who the Czechs sell to).


update on Mabafran Militia "Heavy Technical" made from farm tractor (Tonka from K-Bee toys), liberation gunner, liberation DsHK,
old floppy disks, styrene sheet and angle iron. Believe it or not, this is the first "model" ever built by my brother. I finally dragged
him into 20mm gaming/modeling and he chose to start building armor for these tractors in metal! Im pretty impressed with his work so far!











Mangerian Tank Hunter: purchased in parts from Czechoslovakia and assembled by German Mercs (UM SiG 33 and ACE Pak36r








Technical army (Mabafran and Mangerian... hard to tell who is who since they are all from the same country)

These were all built by our very own Sam Scott.
All figures and weapons are Liberation.
All vehicles are Johnny Lightning.
Sam also added all sorts of accessories (I dont know where from).
I really love these vehicles and will continue
to add to my army whenever I can.











Full Army










I am looking for feedback everyone! Please feel free to chime in, i am always looking for improvements!

Thanks,

WPD

this Light cav detachment is simply great.

really love them.
Reminds me that two great African democrats are currently in France these days.. Idris Debbi, president of Tchad - while six frenchmen are presently rotting in his jails - discovered that in this civilised country you have to supply your own food in jail if you want to eat - and MF Khadaki, premier of Lybia -no comments. France used to be Human Rights fatherland..

still I love your figs and sent a pic of your tractors to my brother in law, who's a Farmer..

The vehicles are so nice! My favourites are the Toyota BJ 40s. For me, they are THE 4x4 used in Africa. Very Happy

Those vehicles are great! I really, really love them! Only thing I can think of to improve them is to remove the bases from the figures before putting them in the vehicles, but other than that, truly great!

no problem Sam! (i still have to dig out the 3 wrecks you did for me too)

I am now working on some Unimogs. I have about 10 liberation Unimogs (of each type... i lost some, ordered more, and then found the old ones)

I also have some Matchbox and Hotwheels Unimogs. Rolf was great and sold me some replacement wheels <smile> I did a bunch of priming etc yesterday so i will be able to start painting soon i hope.

I started on my unimogs. In these pix are two matchbox, two hotwheels, and two Liberation unimogs. Someone told me they all scaled out and they were right. Rolf makes a open cab (with supplies in bed) and a soft top version (with open bed). Matchbox makes a hard top with open bed. The hotwheels have a hard top with open bed... but the cab is a different style. The wheels are pretty bad on hotwheels and some of the matchbox vehciles so i bought replacements from Rolf (pile of primer gray wheels)



here are hotwheels coming apart... they needed a lot of work but have a more angular look (military style) than the other types of unimogs.


as you can see... i managed to squeeze a driver and a passenger (with AK-47) inside the cab of this Unimog! (one of the main reasons I like the hotwheels ones)


Here are some primered ones:




Next up are some old AFVs purchased by the Mabafrans from an unscrupulous Spanish Arms dealer. These vehicles were hand built and are 30+ years old dating back to the spanish civil war!

The painting quality on those technicals is superb. Loved the 'pulpit' on the sawn-off vw.

Sorry to tell you about the Unimogs: The old Matchbox 406/421 are great, but the 425s don´t look neither well sculpted, nor do they match in scale. I once owned the real 404 model and drove the 1300 in the army ( I think, I have a picture of both together somewhere, I´ll try to digitalize it for you, if I find it...). They are in size comparison like a Mini to a Range Rover. Majorette from France has done the newer models with a short wheelbase, which could fit to the Matchbox ones. Their wheels were alright as well.
