During WWII, the British Army needed to provide mobility for paratroopers who had been dropped behind enemy lines; their solution was the folding airborne bicycle (according to some, known as the "Parabike"). It was light enough to be carried in large numbers on transport aircraft, and of course also to be carried individually in the air by paratroopers. To make it more compact, the bicycle had a hinge in the middle of the frame so it could be folded. The model includes 2 bicycle models, which can be assembled in folded or extended form.  Includes two (2) figures, one in the process of getting on a bicycle, and the other pushing, two different arm positions, choose between a helmet or beret,  entrenching tool, haversack, pouch and water canteen, Lee Enfield No.Mk.I rifle.
