Japanese Bike Troops

The HaT WWII Japanese Bike Troops with a few Airfix troops tossed into the mix.
The Japanese in WWII operated in many primative areas with few or poor roads.
Bikes were very helpful in moving heavy loads, mortar shells, rifle and machine gun ammo.
The dog is from a ceramic Christmas building figure. It was molded onto the base next to a lady in a long dress. He was a tiny dog next to her, but a Newfoundland in this scale.

These HaT bikes fit nicely with the Airfix figures and should do well with the other sets of 1/72nd scale plastic Japanese troops.
