Here is a bash i did some years back, which was a lot of fun to put together.....hope you like it.

Meet wee Andy, ............Andy is right wee scamp!!!  ,
...he is forever getting into trouble,  ........should it be knocking on people's doors and running during a blackout, or firing his catapult at anything that moves, he is always up to something.
However,...he has come to a sorry end today, because just as he was about to fire his catapult at the Air raid warden passing by on his bicycle,....Constable Webster just happens to emerge from a side entry, and finally caught him in the act.

Nice diorama and figures! cheers

Back then, the local Bobby would give you a clip round the ear for being cheeky. The railings looked very fiddly to make.

Thanks fellas.
to answer a few questions, yes Jet, that is indeed the DiD German figure i used.
..and Clive, the railings were wooden skewers pushed through a piece of balsa and painted...fiddly enough but not too bad..they already had a point on them so no need to do that.

Thanks again for the kind words fellas, on a very old bash.

Neil.

LMAO I loved this short story of Wee Andy getting caught red handed. The figures clothes look brilliant and the set looked brilliant as well.

Thanks for showing us this The Ulsterman Wink.

Tremendous work Neil well done.
No doubt the scallywag will get his head jammed in those railings at a later date.

[quote="The Ulsterman"]should it be knocking on people's doors and running during a blackout,
.we called that thunder and lightning neil , great dio but the peelers nowadays wouldnt get away with giving anyone a cuff round the ear or i kick in the pants , the kids would threaten to take them to court with the pics they took with their mobiles as evidence . bloody toerags
