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 Tamiya model faithfully captures the real life subjects nuances in 1/35
scale. Tamiyas model designers did extensive research on the full size subject
to capture every detail.
