Here is some backstory to my latest MOC:
In 1980, the SAS were given the go-ahead to assault the Iranian Embassy at Princes Gate in London. Six days previously, a group calling itself the 'Democratic Revolutionary Front for Arabistan' took over the building, capturing 26 hostages. In an 11-minute mission, in front of the world media and in broad daylight, the SAS recaptured the building killing all but one of the terrorists.
In this vignette, we see part of blue team absailing onto the front balcony (in reality they climbed onto the front balcony and red team absailed onto the rear, but I took some artistic licence).
I should add that I used Google Earth to design the building as accurate as possible and Steve White's photos of the building were an invaluable source of inspiration.

Comments and (constructive) criticism always appreciated.
