    I know we're all about figure work here, mostly, but scratch building ribbing and a bit of interior really wouldn't be much, not at all, IMHO. This, like Bundook mentioned, could be displayed at an angle, just like many we've all dealt with in the past, Gents. This is a great concept, Ruck On!

    This has great potential, especially for the commission guys who could punch these out in short order. Great peice, looking forward to seeing the pricing.

    Cheers, Ski.

    Yeah... But now I want this with a second figure, either standing behind (see image above) or the load master! But even without that, I'd still want to detail the interior.

    I agree, I like this idea, but you make great points. Detail will be interesting. And a second figure would be pretty cool. Such a dramatic moment. Imagine loading onto your ride into occupied France on that night... most of these guys had never been to Europe before this...

    Update to the project. The boots are being remodeled to come in line with the original photo and work has began on detailing the fuselage section.
    Cheers

    Thank you for posting this. I have been racking my brain trying to remember who made this one. I immediately thought of this one when this thread started and have been trying to recall. It was a bit more primitive than this piece but same ilk.

    Perfect. I know it will increase the price, but what a set piece with just that little bit of interior. Well done.
