Here a some photos of my scratch built 1/72 scale Buffel MPV APCs. These very distinctive South African APCs saw a lot of service in the wars in Southern Africa during the 1980s. They were also used in Sri Lanka during their civil war. The only commercially available model of a Buffel available in 1/72 scale costs $50 and is a highly detailed resin kit. It is thus for reasons of price and fragility unsuitable for gaming which is what I want my Buffels for. Luckily I found someone who could scratch build these for me and the end result are really little works of art.
