Ewan,
It's been a while looking forward to it. I'll make sure I've the time to come over .

Here's a few pics.

Just realized when I looked at the pictures I need to go back and level off the end of the flare gun.

I did make a pilot in harness (similar to the para one ) wrestling down a chute..
At the moment thats not on the casting list .As I'm not sure how commercially viable it is.As it's a very niche figure.

Cheers H'

It's not so much a crew as a set of individuals from different theatre's .That can be used to represent a crew.
I do have another vignette set which has an injured German pilot/ crewman sat on the ground as well.
Which is very much a Follies set. As it includes a couple in their PJ's and a bemused Constable.
It's that sort of set that adds a little colour to a table .Or just looks fun on a shelf

Oh! I do like the sounds of that. Creating some vignettes is my sort of fun.

Thank you Mark.

Lovely vignette.  Since the lady appears to be carrying a lamp it seems to be set at night perhaps some children in Siren Suits appropriately armed with a teddy bear, a garden fork, toy pop-gun etc?

No worries H' I'm glad you like it.

These look great Mark. Very characterful. I hope they make it to 1st Corp at some point.

It shouldn't be that long as I'm ment to pop over to Simon and Micks. At the beginning of October .

Akula.
Normally I'd agree that such a car ,even wrecked.Would looked dated and out place on a 'modern-day' table.
However...

Its possible to not only make relevant. But to make it a story piece. With one very quick and very simple addition.
In fact it would take less than a minute.

A simple strip of white paper less than 2mm thick. Attached to the windscreen post under the brick rubble down to the radiator then back towards the body and draped down the front wing. Or simply just in the traditional 'V' ;)

I think will indeed add that to the mix.  :D
As  children are already part of another set.( which could in theory be mixed in with this set. To make a more interesting vignette.)
Cheers.

I think that ruined vehicle would also be worth casting. I can see a few uses for that in my project right out of the gate.
