I love these Bulgarian projects! Do you build exclusively ground vehicles or do you delve into the Bulgarian AF of WW2 as well? Did the Bulgarians employ any domestically produced AFVs or those unused by any other nation in WW2?
Edward-thanks for your comment,mate!
I build ground vehicles only or at least so far.
Bulgaria was mainly an agricultural country back then, also a country that lost the WWI and was therefore restricted in military means and matters, so there couldn't be and there were no domestic AFV developments like in some neighboring countries.The Kingdom of Bulgaria relied entirely on import und bought it's AFV's from various European countries-like Italy,UK,Czechoslovakia, after 1940 exclusively from Germany, and finaly-after 1945-from Soviet Union.
No, thank you for applying your' skills to these relatively obscure modeling topics! I was not sure as I knew Hungary at least was able to develop some AFVs between the wars or maybe just at the start of the war. I have several Bulgarian aircraft projects planned but not yet outlined here. Probably the most obscure of which is the DAR-10F prototype, a model of which a buddy of mine in Sofia sent to me or the Kaproni-Bulgarski KB-6 Papagal. I know the Bulgarian Army fought at the side of the Soviets in the Spring of 1945; Have you encountered any reference to Bulgarian AF elements involved in those operations?
Edward, PM me your points of interest-my mail is in my profile- and I will see what I can find.I have a lot of modelling buddies obsessed with Bulgarian AF like I'm obsessed with Bulgarian AFV and this evening we have our weekly meeting😉
PM sent! I hope it made it in time.😉
