Where are you going with that pig

Socialise and chat about other areas of your life
This is the second time i have tried to post this .This is a diorama i have been working on since June of last year ,on and off ,mostly off
The title refers to a question a German officer is asking of a motorbike and sidecar rider ,they meet either end of a wooden bridge .

Bugger lost another post ,the base is a 2ftx2ft piece of MDF with a layer of ready mixed plaster/filler ,the green things are foam blocks used in flower arranging .
The bridge is balsa and dowel and came as a kit ,i posted some photos on a model making site .
One guy replied that in real life it would not be strong enough ,so i made a bit for the middle .
I felt like replying that i didn't know i needed a degree in civil engineering just to make models :D
Here is a photo of the under side of the bridge with the bit i made in the middle .

Did you build the ."tractor unit"yourself or is that. An already made item?

Are you intending to add more figures?
Hi ,yes i built it ,it is a Krupp Protze ,made by a Japanese firm named Tamiya it will be towing a gun ,there will be 4 figures on it ,forgot to add that there is a trussed up pig in the sidecar .
The motorbike and side car is also a kit in 1/35 scale it is made by a Russian model company called Zvezda .
There is a photo included in the instructions showing that the motorbike with a pig in the sidecar is based on an real event .
That explains a lot more.

I wondered at first whether the military vehicle had the nickname of "pig". As a British army vehicle was called a Humber Pig

Hi here is the photo the kit is based on.
What a strange world it is ,70 odd years ago Germany and Russia were knocking 7 kinds of you know what out of each other ,now they make model kits .

I have a bad feeling that pig is going on a one-way trip.

It will come back as bacon.....oh dear.
It used to be called "foraging for supplies"
