New from SKP Model is a figure depicting a subject set in Logar, Afghanistan.
Logar is one of the 34 provinces of Afghanistan. During the Soviet war in Afghanistan. It was known among some Afghans as the Bab al-Jihad (Gates of Jihad) because it became a fierce theatre of war between US-backed / trained Mujahideen groups and the Soviet-backed Afghan government troops.

SKP 207 Logar Gate Guard is a resin kit that builds 1 figure in 1/35 scale. Sample figure painted by Juan Perez.

I was stationed in Logar Province in 2014. Even though activity had slown down considerably, our base was still called " Rocket City". COP English and FOB Shank were in the same area. Dont remember seeing Polish troops there when I was, but they were at Bagram.

Hey fhvn4d: This is a czech figure not a polish. I just checked by google pictures. If you search for "czech flag" or "czech troops Afghanistan" you will find pictures of Soldiers wearing this white/blue/red flag. Cheers from Germany

I stand corrected. Ill have to see if I can find a picture of their gun trucks at Bagram and see if the flag was this one or different
