    This is a Cushman 53 U. S. Abn. Scooter used in WWII. The kit is by Hornet in 1/35 scale in metal. I have finished the Scooter and am working on the rest of the parts. The figure is by VLS of an WWII Paratrooper. The cement wall is by Custom Dioramics. Will post more pictures as I make more progress.

    I have added a pack to the scooter handlebars. Also added the throttle cable from the handlebars to the motor. Not able to see because of the angle of the picture. The scooter is finished.
    I painted the cement wall and added the graffiti. The wall is also done.
    The body of the 101st Abn. Paratrooper is also done.
    Next up is the head and the ground work.
    Thanks for looking.

    Nice work so far Nick.
    Like the graffiti. I heard this kilroy was pretty popular in those days.

    May I suggest some darker outlining of the para's webbing? That could make him pop a bit more.

    Cheers,
    Adrian
