Ground crew crisis!

The recent Megablitz game revealed (as did it's predecessor...) something of a shortage of ground crew toys.  Although seemingly irrelevant, when it is considered that many games cover areas of 200+ km in depth it will readily be appreciated that much of the air support available is actually based on table!  I have already completed a few stands using the Airfix RAF/Luftwaffe/USAAF Personnel sets but more vehicles were needed.  I started this batch before the A Battle Lost? game but ran out of time to finish them.  I'll post more photos of the individual toys later.

I just love the tractor and bomb trolley - from the Airfix Stirling bomber kit. Mine met with disaster when it got left in the sun and badly warped as a result. Even the bombs twisted and ended up looking like black bananas. All I have left is the driver.

Great collection!

LOL - as usual completely mad - and lots of fun! :)

Happily I was spared the need to build a Stirling as I was given (most of) the parts for the tractor and bomb trolleys a few years ago.

Mad? How dare you sir! I'm as sane as er, you. Oh, see what you mean....

Great stuff- have you seen that Airfix has released a set of the tractors and similar items by themselves... no need to get the large Sterling that way.

Cheers,

Pete.

Some great work here Tim. I did not know about the tractor and bomb trolley Airfix combo.

Is that the boys in blues or les hommes en bleu?

You've clearly not spent enough time studying old Airfix catalogues!
