P47D in a field...

#1

Post by Tim R-T-C »

Bad day at the office?

After flak damage and a run in with an interceptor over France, this P47D pilot suffered stuck gear and made an emergency landing at the first airbase he found back across the channel - going sliding off the end and into a field with a rescue jeep in hot persuit!

Now Lt. Kibbe has to explain to the RAF officers that he doesn't need to attend their medical facility but instead to get back to his own airfield (is a town visit night!) while the rescue jeep crew put away their unrequired extinguishers and a couple of US soldiers arrive on the scene having been summoned to guard the aircraft from souvenir hunters.

Platz P47 with Arrowhead vehicles and figures.

Beautiful little dio telling a whole story on a couple of square inches!
When looking at all the details, it doesn't need an explanation. Even gives credit to a damn accurate Flak crew not present in the dio. ..
Particularly like the Dodge (just received one from Arrowheads) - raising the bar, that one!

Agree on all counts. I love the way your figures are posed so they contribute to the telling of the story. And the aircraft and vehicles are first rate, too. :mrgreen:
