For an idea of what is eligible here is a good list, which will provide plenty of opportunities for a subject:
Note: even though some of those operations start before and/or finish after the above period, GB subject must have been deployed after start of August 1990 to be eligible, and it must be a combat zone where actual combat occurred, even if the subject did not actively participate i.e. patrol, recon, sentry, etc. If in doubt, check with the admins.
No part started kits, must be a new build. Please post a photo of the unstarted kit contents and a date reference as the first post in your build thread

Corrans Entry- 1/35 Meng Pick Up with ZU-23-2

Actually the non badging of the pickup is not too far fetched. In countries that have (UN) trade embargo/sanctions it is not unusually to have equipment imported with the more visible trademarks removed so there is some level of deniability of breaking sanctions.
Tempted to rip into this right now!! But I wanna do some mre work on the Stuka first. Not a lot of reference pics that I have been able to find! So if any one has any.. I would love some help there!! Will hopefully get some sprue shots up later on.

Could you finnish it in Toyota Beige and then some effects to represent overspray of canned areosol paints?
Let us know how the build goes.
I wonder if they have anything to brace the vehicle when firing?
Would it shake so much that anything after the first round is certain to go astray?
Dunno bout paint yet Marcus.. As for firing issues..you would think so wouldnt you!! Prolly more about getting rounds down range in a ball park area! I have very little reference material to be honest!
Actually made a start on this yesterday while I was watching some telly...This is my first MENG kit..Do they all fall together like this?? No issues at all (other than breaking the steering rod between the front wheels..will sort that later!). All the major construction on the truck itself is pretty much done..some primer then paint and the put the drive train together and attach the cab. Still havnt decided on an exterior colour yet..
If the rest of the build goes this well I will be a happy camper! Gun looks a little fiddly tho..we will see...
