Great build, I love the scratch built details you have added, the ground crew are awesome too ! Incidentally, I have just made a base using the same materials you did !
Great minds and all that lol ! I also enjoyed seeing the pics of your lightning nose up, it looked like it was in a vertical climb ! When the figures are added this will be a great little diorama, thanks for showing

Ok last bit of scratch building.. here are the 3d plan I put together to visualize the ladder
[plans4ladder]
And here is the first step...  *groan*
[ladder1]  [ladder2]  [ladder3] 
I had to add metal foil to the sides to strengthen them as I tried drilling holes to put the rungs and broke the plastic. It's just less than an inch and a half long (3.5cm)

More scratch built stuff follows when I get chance to post it Lol

p.s. if I had more time I would have rebuilt this ladder, with what I learned during its construction I'm sure I can do a better job, but have ran out of the correct size strip so it will have to do for now.

Next bit are the Redtop missile carts, built mainly out of tubing and 4 punched wheels.

[trollys1]  [trollys2]  [trollys3] 

I'll add some wire to detail these up later (If I get chance) for now they will do (see later post)

Now the hmm, not sure what it is a generator maybe? I see these on a lot of parked shots, this version or another type used by the Saudi's

[box1]  [box2] 
I got a couple of wheels from a kit I'm using as spares, you can see a gas bottle I'm working on too above the wheels.
I have added more details, a front pull bit some greebles and am adding a curved top, wasn't happy with the flat one in the shots to follow.

Thanks for all the encouraging words all [smile]

Here's my air/gas tank assembly shots

[air1]  [air2] 

I think this has come out particularly well.

I took a couple of different gauge styrene rod, cut and bent a length using heat, the rest where cut to fit the bent rod,
a couple of wheels where punched out of stock sheet, a couple more lengths where bent and the ends sanded flat then glued to the back of the trolley so it can lay flat,
the pole was then added and finally the hose glued from the valve to the bottom of the pole.

All the reference shots I use are taken straight from Google searches, some took forever to find decent photo's of, would probably been faster if I knew what half of this stuff was Lol [wink]

Just doing last minute changes, getting the paint to look right on the ground crew equipment,
adding wire to the missile trolleys to make them look well better.
a bit of weathering on it all
adding labels to stuff (white squares lol)
I while searching the net for 'raf oxygen bottle trolley' found out what both the oxygen bottle was that's a fire extinguisher and
the green 2 wheeled thing, that's an electric accumulator used in stating aircraft, right back to WW2 days and beyond!
the accumulator showed in the above search, I couldn't even search on what it was before to get better reference shots, luckily I didn't do a bad job with the shots I had and don't need to change it [smile]

[equipment] 
I really do need to remake the pilot ladder (It's just too beaten up, the rungs aren't all the right length, the side arms because of an error when I made it and had to reenforce them with metal foil aren't right, I'm just not happy with it) but unfortunately time has overtaken me and it will have to wait till after the final build shots

It's looking really good, close to the end now ! Looks like a couple of the ground crew had a liquid lunch too !
Looking forward to seeing the finished pics

everything coming together gets more exciting with each picture. I get attached to the kits I build and near the end it is kind of depressing in a way--happy depression--LOL
