To go with the Home Guard guys, I have painted up the Foundry "German Aircrew" set.
My aircrew needed an aircraft to go with them and I decided that I needed something like a crashed bomber.
As it turned out one of my work mates was able to help.
This old bomber started life about 30 odd years ago when it was built by a young 10 or 11 year old Craig. It lived, for a period of time in the bottom draw of a set of drawers, along with a number of other model planes that Craig had made as a youngster. His parents house was ransacked by burglars and the planes were all damaged to some degree. Craig rebuilt them and kept them, eventually, when he had a place of his own he hung them from the roof in his garage. Next the 7.1 earthquake in 2010 struck and the poor old Dornier along with the rest of the model planes came crashing down. Some of them Craig has rebuilt, again, but this one was a bit far gone. Not for me however, being perfect for the job I had in mind.
Thanks Craig for providing (and making) this essential part for my game.
