I'll be attending the Great Western LEGO show in Swindon next weekend, and decided to display some of my minifig scale aircraft models. Just having a few aircraft models on a table might be fun, but I figured it will be more interesting if I'd add some vehicles and ground crew too, so in the last weeks I've building a few new vehicles.
The first is the last I built: an RAF Matador Refueling truck. This will accompany my Mosquito bomber.

Number two and three are a US Army Air Force GMC tanker truck and my own version of the ubiquitous Jeep, seen here with the ground crew. I've had the Jeep for a while, but never made a few changes recently. The truck is a rebuild of a model I built more than two years ago, but took apart, with a few minor improvements. Both vehicles are old dark grey.

Here they are with my P-61B Black Widow, which I completed a few weeks ago.

The fourth vehicle is probably the most unusual. It's a German Kettenkraftrad. It was originally developed as an air-transportable artillery tractor, but was actually used for all kinds of other roles. For instance, it was used for towing aircraft. I built it for my Heinkel He-219.

I haven't made a picture of the whole lot together yet. I'll also be bringing US Navy aircraft (examples I built for Ed Diment's USS intrepid), but you're going to have to come to Swindon to see those!
