    These are for my 1/600th scale Alto Cenepa War mash up project, hence the Peruvian Air Force in it’s totally inappropriate camouflage (I wonder why they lost?)

    They look great Jack, very effective. A Couple of questions:

    How did you fix down the clump foliage? Is it just sealed with the spray paint, or did you use watered down PVA?

    You’ve switched rules from Target Locked On to WaW. Any particular reason, and what are your thoughts generally on the two systems? I’ve only ever tried Missile Threat and I’m interested in what other rule sets might offer.

    I’ve been following your blogs for a while, I really like Latin American air wars.

    Life's too long.

    I used full on PVA to stick the foliage down then when it was dry, sprayed it with the Humbrol grass green so that it was firmly set in place.

    I am still using Target Locked On but will also be having a go with a Wings at War adaptation. The planes are magnet based so, if I want to use hex stands for TLO I can swap them over. I like TLO as it has some neat mechanisms and is quick to play. I haven’t played WaW yet but have always wanted to try it out for the Alto Cenepa conflict, as it models the air war side of it really well – helos, MANPAD’s, resupply, ground attack etc etc

    Forgot to say that I’ll be using the Falklands WaW set as the core with all the relevant bits jiggled to fit the Alto Cenepa.

    My current idea is to have both sides running helo re-supply missions to their respective front line bases, with ground attack missions and bombing raids on the same and also CAP over the top. The main threat would be MANPAD’s at lower levels and fighters up top. Not sure how I’ll work in the Hercules?

    Now I’ve done a whole jungle load in three different levels using 40mm, 30mm and 13mm panel pins for Wings at War: Thud Ridge and Target Locked On! 

    I could have used 20mm for the lowest but I like the tree hugging effect!
