Title: Modelling the Antonov 12 (Cub) for wargaming

Yes, the big Soviet bird deployed on the table - either unloading on the deck or dropping kit at levels that are way outside Health & Safety!

Now.  I want to depict the hull cargo doors open.  Any images out there ? An existing model perhaps?  From the hazy image of an ASU-85 unloading it looks like the rear panel folds inwards and a small ramp projects ??

Have a look at 5:00 onwards;  the doors open inward, but this clip doesn't show the ramp, so it 's probably an internal one?

Many thanks for these links.

Ramps appear to be portable type when vehicles are carried.
