RAF Ground Crew Cyclist--single WWII RAF figure on bicycle
Item Number: RAF091
RAF Ground Crew Cyclist
The ‘Battle of Britain’ is often described as the first military campaign fought entirely by air forces and it mostly took place in the skies above southern Britain during the summer and autumn of 1940. A major element in the British success was the other battle fought on the ground that allowed weary pilots to relax and rest while their Spitfires and Hurricanes were being rearmed, refueled and often repaired.
Wartime airfields covered large areas and often the easiest way for both pilots and groundcrew to get around was to use bicycles. This chap has obviously got his from stores as it is painted in authentic RAF Blue.
Due to be released in AUGUST 2021.
