Danger in the Sunflowers

Danger in the Sunflowers

Postby LSSAH » 27 Mar 2012

My entry for this Group Build, a Taliban ManPAD Team firing a SAM7 from cover in a sunflower field, somewhere in Afghanistan. The team have been formed around the very tidy Taliban figures from Under Fire Miniatures http://www.underfireminiatures.com/ and based on an mdf round. The sunflowers are from the German model railway company BUSCH. I've tried to set the scene of a ManPAD Team under reasonable cover engaging an ISAF air asset in the distance, the missile's on the way, the backblast has flattened the foliage behind the firer, and Terry's keeping everything crossed.
Hopefully for the Taliban Ugly51 isn't in the vacinity :grin: Dougie

Well Rob, we have seen some jaw-dropping stuff on this forum over the years, but I think this may be in a different league - words fail me :shock: This may be the best entry we`ve had in any build to date, I`m simply stunned at the clever-ness of it :tease:

I think I`ll go back to Lego ;)
