Here is a review by Jean-Luc Formery (TedMamere) of a cute little 1/48 scale resin figure set from Toro Model: Mirella, girl with donkey. It will surely add that little extra to any diorama!

Hi jean-Luc

nice review of the kit. Wish I had asked Wojciech for on of those, though my figure painting skills are very bad.

I imagine a scene "Workhorses" with the paratroopers from YS Masterpieces and a Ju 52 (maybe crashlanded) .. here is a reveiw of the figures ...

YS Fallschirmjäger

the donkey looks suspiciously like the pegasus animal .... at least the ear could have been reposed.

all the best

Great potential! I recall a photo of an Allied airfield around Naples of a local with a donkey bringing produce to sell to the soldiers. Anyone familiar with it? Anyway, I can see these two popping up in diormams all over!

That has nothing to do with Catch 22 does it?
