Hey Al,
Nice review of very interesting accessory set.
Thanks for the heads up about the trestle.
Having watched "A Bridge Too Far" a number of times, I always wondered what that thing was that the brave para detached before he picked up and started to carry the canister filled with berets.
Cheers

Hi John,

Morning to you. Yes they could either be dropped directly forn inside the plane or attached to the under side and released over the drop zone.



A sample for the Airborne museum at Duxford.



This one with a welbike



and another form inside



I do hope MB remember this when they are doing the C47.
