Hello Again
The second of our new figure releases is this set of Airborne Troops. They are based on photographs taken by AFPU photographer Capt Bill Malandine at RAF Harwell in the days leading up to D-Day. The set is called 'Airborne Troops, Tea and a Wad' and comprises six unpainted resin figures. They are wearing airborne smocks and three of them have the large lifejackets worn by paras and glider-borne troops.



The Horsa in the background is a modified Italeri kit with serial numbers from our set depicting the gliders that landed at 'Pegasus Bridge'

Thanks for taking a look. More to follow.

Hi
If they want sugar I'll have to create tiny ration books! And spoons.

Thanks for the comments.

Hello Elliott
Funny you should ask. I've got a really nice pair of pictures of a jeep being loaded onto a Horsa via a special ramp construction. It has a load of poeple pushing and directing. If I can find some good reference on the ramp it may well work...

Thanks
Dan
