    Yes, I know it's a piece of armour on an aircraft forum but there is an airplane connection... Tamiya's 1/35 GMC 6x6 'Deuce' truck with a whole bunch of aftermarket in the back, depicting a late war souvenir collector :)

    Beautiful work as usual Mike. I've got one of those on the shelf and I plan on putting a dismantled L-4 in the back of it. I've got several pics of this, must have been a fairly common practice.

    That's a great looking display Mike, I like the tail trophy, is it part of the kit?

    Thanks for your comments guys. Wayne, I made the decal myself and it's spurious, not representing any particular ace. Vic, the rudder came from a really old/inaccurate Revell 1/32 Bf109G; slightly out-of-scale but OK. All the other junk and captured German stuff in the truck bed came from various Tamiya/Italeri accessory packs, and there are a few resin items in there too. The .50 cal is a Legend resin item with brass-etch rounds.
