Message from Kooijpolloi in South African Border War: Operation Savannah #modeling

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

2019-04-12 13:41:25 UTC  

Have you shown them my Buffel and other vehicles?

2019-04-12 13:42:01 UTC  

Snotneus was only issued to fighting units as far as they know

2019-04-12 13:42:16 UTC  

My dad only used it when they were attached to 62 mech

2019-04-12 13:42:49 UTC  

Wasn't the Snotneus the M79?

2019-04-12 13:43:02 UTC  

Or was the "snotneus" nickname also applied to the Milkor Y2 MGL?

2019-04-12 13:45:06 UTC  

My Milkor Y2 MGL still work in progress. Been awhile since I worked on it though as I was preoccupied with the other models.

2019-04-12 13:45:06 UTC

2019-04-12 13:45:23 UTC  

They applied snotneus to all GLs

2019-04-12 13:45:40 UTC  

Ah alright good to know

2019-04-12 13:45:49 UTC

2019-04-12 13:46:17 UTC  

And it was issued after 83-84 as well

2019-04-12 13:46:45 UTC  

They started using more MAGs per unit as well

2019-04-12 13:46:53 UTC  

More mortars as well

2019-04-12 13:46:58 UTC  

Lots of 60mm

2019-04-12 13:48:18 UTC  

The M26 grenade was also used by troops correct?

2019-04-12 13:53:13 UTC  

Yes m26

2019-04-12 13:54:10 UTC  

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.

2019-04-12 13:54:38 UTC  

It's the small details like this that while not super important are nice to get right.

2019-04-12 13:58:02 UTC  


2019-04-12 13:59:33 UTC  

Okay cool. That's about it for now, thanks man.

2019-04-12 13:59:35 UTC  

All english

2019-04-12 13:59:41 UTC  

Cool cool

unimogs in africa

2019-04-12 20:06:54 UTC  

Ja the SADF used plenty of them. The Buffel uses a Unimog chassis

2019-04-12 20:07:02 UTC  

superb vehicles

2019-04-12 21:19:33 UTC  

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.

2019-04-13 20:53:52 UTC  

Current line up of WIP vehicle models.

2019-04-13 20:55:17 UTC  

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.

2019-04-13 20:56:08 UTC  

either way it all looks very nice my man

2019-04-13 20:56:51 UTC  

I wish they were all done already 😩 but it takes a hell of a lot of time and effort to get to that stage.

2019-04-13 20:58:15 UTC  

Going to be a dream come true though seeing these in action in Squad.

2019-04-13 21:24:56 UTC  

You and me both
