Message from Springbok in South African Border War: Operation Savannah #modeling
You could maybe just use the buffel
Ja I may consider doing the soft skin Unimog down the line just to flesh out the SADF early war period a bit but it's not a priority at the moment
Have you shown them my Buffel and other vehicles?
Snotneus was only issued to fighting units as far as they know
My dad only used it when they were attached to 62 mech
Wasn't the Snotneus the M79?
Or was the "snotneus" nickname also applied to the Milkor Y2 MGL?
My Milkor Y2 MGL still work in progress. Been awhile since I worked on it though as I was preoccupied with the other models.
They applied snotneus to all GLs
Ah alright good to know
And it was issued after 83-84 as well
They started using more MAGs per unit as well
More mortars as well
Lots of 60mm
The M26 grenade was also used by troops correct? https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/7/78/M-61Grenade.jpg
Was the writing on the grenade in English or Afrikaans? Since I believe they were locally manufactured the writing on the grenades if there was any may have differed from the US version? Might be something difficult to recall though.
It's the small details like this that while not super important are nice to get right.
Okay cool. That's about it for now, thanks man.

Ja the SADF used plenty of them. The Buffel uses a Unimog chassis
progress so far today.
Still plenty of issues with bad proportions and such. As some stuff I've done by eye. I made the mistake of going too detailed too soon on this which is biting me in the arse now.
Current line up of WIP vehicle models.
Eland door holes look weird because they're N-gons which causes artifacts in Marmoset as well as UE4. They need to be turned into quads.
either way it all looks very nice my man
I wish they were all done already 😩 but it takes a hell of a lot of time and effort to get to that stage.
Going to be a dream come true though seeing these in action in Squad.
