Default Rhodesia

Facepool was kind enough to send me a few sculpts to customize.
I decided to create a vignette of a topic not often depicted in 1/6 namely Rhodesia.

The cammo worn by your guys isn't Portuguese.

For these purposes its close enough, my guess is you don't have a clue what is available in 1/6
Anyway last time you started trolling my thread we both got a warning by Pascal, so rather then that happening again I'll be
the bigger person and crown you the king of Kammo ok...

Peace

Obviously you need to correctly do your research before posting misleading titles in your modeling attempts.
You can't take criticism very well and have to go crying to a moderator while throwing your toys out of the crib.

Here is the the Rhodesia Cammo pattern and here is 1-6 th British Windproof trousers that would have made a way better stand in for the pattern.
Please donít assume I havenít done my homework before adding to your thread , as itís insulting.

Completely different.
If a mercenary was wearing lizard in Rhodesia he would have been a communist and would not be in the diorama like your effort shows.
Lizard was an enemy pattern and if worn by Rhodesian personnel his face would be blacked up as it usually be part of an infiltration rouse.

Here is the 2 Portuguese patterns which are quite different from the French that you actually used
Getting things correct in this day and age is quite easy if you spend time to research.

No, both are kit bashes, with the camo items made by the modellers themselves.

This is all really funny, nobody has to show me what Rhodesian, French and Portuguese camo looks like.

I don't really have to defend the choices made for this project and I don't need to respond to any negativity.

It seems to me the back up troops were called in.

I was aware of the two previous kitbashes and like them.

Again, Kammo seems to take a special interest in focusing on minor infractions and I'm not going to get drawn into a flamewar because as stated before I know where that will lead.

But thank you for generating traffic to my post.
