Compliments to your build.
I like your idea with the crane who lift the "bird" of the ground.

Made without aftermarket parts. All additions and that are a lot in scratch. Good ideas, roofs top load and nice two tone paint to the truck. (I like that not a single wheel is in the air.) That the drivers window is open is a nice touch.
Also the made and paint of the figures is detailed. (Matchbox do a great work with your chosen figures.)
Simple but well done presentation.
:yeah:

Congratulations, huib.

After all the step by step process of construction of the vehicle, is a delight for the eyes viewing the finished result with also the figures included: a top ten work. :yeah:

Cheers. :-)

Nice scene. The vehicle is great, figure painting excellent, I like the roof stowage and I really like the painting of the doodlebug. Quite attractive for such a nasty little weapon.

Great enemy weapon evaluation scene. Followed the build of this, so I know all the extra work that went into this. It has yielded a wonderful display. Work alone on the crane/truck is terrific. Love the self made rigging on the Buzz Bomb too. Congrats!

The brave little lads of the RAF,seem very well at ease while that flying bomb is being lifted.
But who wants reality? After all this is a fun-time type topic with awesome work and painting skills.
I suppose one could say the Doodlebug was the first cruise missile! BB

And a curiosity to watch flying over as long as they were making a noise.

This has been an excellent tutorial ending in something very special indeed.

Brilliant re build, brilliant painting, simple but nice composition and an unusual story to boot.

Well done.
