Mighty Juju against aircraft

Mighty Juju against aircraft

Postby dadlamassu » 21 Apr 2014

In the spirit of a speed build the model was assembled, converted and painted in one day. I started at 0830 this morning and finished it at about 1700. The time included drinking tea, eating lunch, playing for an hour with my grandson and walking the dogs twice. The only additions to the boxes as supplied are the driver and crew helmets (from surplus Esci Vietnam US infantry) and some more ammo boxes from the spares box but from the Airfix Bofors set.

The Omigoligosh district of Morvalonga has been suffering from incursions by Qaza'ar mercenary pilots in support of the MOLAR insurgents. So the District Council Leader, Minza Bigbier, put together a self propelled AA vehicle. The contract went through the usual tendering process and his cousin Tumeni Bigbier as usual won the contract.

Brilliant.

Not sure where on the continent Morvalonga is, ;) but I am sure you could find one of these somewhere in sub-saharan africa... very plausible. Sorta like some innovative local fellas have nicked an old Bofors from outside a MOTH Shellhole and stuck it on a very surplus ex SADF Bedford...

When the SADF pensioned off their Bedfords (mid/late 70s?) our country was awash with them - practically every farmer, game farmer, safari operator and overland tour company had one, in all their unreliable glory. Plenty of cut-off cab Bedfords used for game viewing - some still being used... for example... http://pretoria.olx.co.za/bedford-truck ... -567977045
