The model is a resin and metal casting from Tobsen Miniatures in Germany, who do some fantastically crazy and wacky stuff: https://shop.tobsen77.com/en/ (https://www.facebook.com/Tobsen77.de/) He also sells the characterful pilot figure and the customer service is excellent (including overseas postage & handling). Maxim gun and the backpack/ammo pouches are from my spares box.
|The countersunk magnet in the base made for a very neat connection|
I spent an overly long time trying to be clever by magnetising the base for easier storage, to reduce damage and so I can use the flying base for a multitude of other models. I had mixed results but at least it is serviceable and (mostly) stable. Probably a good height for lighter plastic models but I'll make some shorter tubing for metal contraptions like this one.
So lots of fun and this model is highly recommended!
