For a while now I've wanted to make a small force of modern soldiers. I have the empress sas models which I quite like but I have always fancied a small force of blue hats. I don't know why I just do. I found this picture whilst scouting around online and I don't know why but I really quite like it. I believe it is in the Sudan and is of the African Nations UN Peace Keeping force. Although I dont know for certain.
I believe the chopper is a Russian Hip and I would like a 1:48 version to paint up in the very vivid white UN colour scheme. Try as I might though I cannot find a model manufactuer who makes a model of the Hip in 1:48.
