Getting my choppers out!
I have to say I'm a bit please with myself. Not in any major way but there I was taking some pics for various articles- as you do - well as I do and amonst several not bad sort of pics was this little cracker. What it depicts is a flight of 4 AlouetteIII helicopters in Rhodesian service flying over the bush sometime around 1975. To be precise there are 3 "G-cars" and one "K-car". The G-catrs have the twin .30 cal and the K-car a 20mm cannon. These are 1/100th scale- that 15mm for chaps who don't do scale- models from our "Lil'flyin choppers" range of post WW2 aircraft. Made by Paul Cotton- who also painted 'em they serve to move about my as yet unpainted Fireforce.
