Product Code:

1/35 scale. British Paratroopers with Small Motorcycles. Tamiya. The motorcycle was originally developed for the British Special Operations Executive (SOE). Between 1942 and 1943, around 3,600 motorcycles were produced, and were largely distributed to the 1st and 6th Airborne divisions. Thanks to their folding mechanism, they could be packed snugly into small containers and air-dropped so that the paratroopers could use them upon landing. They were employed in the Normandy landings. Kit includes four (4) separately molded British Paratrooper figures (standing pose and sitting on  motorcycle) with weapons and equipment (haversack, entrenching tool and pouch, water canister, Enfield rifles and Sten Mk.II submachine guns), and 2 small folding motorcycle's with photoetched parts (spokes and chain) and painting reference.
