This is on a Bedford RL, but the refuelling booms are similar to WW2 equipment. The booms are spring loaded to lift the hoses off the deck and are pulled down into the hooks at the rear for stowage.

some excellent pictures there daz, great references for my next project the Airfix Refuelling set. They look Dinky compared to modern refuellers. But huge for their time.

Don't think anyone makes a Sunderland in 1/24 th.......

Or a Landing craft.....




Or a Tanker.....


Now Daz'll prove me wrong.
But they do in 1/72 ......... and he might have room for that :)
