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 :)

Cute chopper :)
 

nice view of the rear double doors open there, I wonder if this area would become stained and oily and well.. a good chance to do some subtle weathering in there, the rest of the refueller would follow typical or predictable weathering, on the tyres and chassis, but in there, with all those pumps and genies going, bound to get a leak or two over time, especially on those nice white interior walls.
