Oxford Diecast 1/76th scale Recovery Truck
This was the 1/76th scale Oxford Diecast DAF/Boniface recovery truck in Kardos Recovery livery. The original livery on the cab was removed with nail varnish remover. The bodywork is made from plastic so I over painted it with 2 coats of matt white and 2 coats of white gloss to cover the original livery. The locker detail was highlighted with a pencil, the new lettering, logos and the locker handles are water-slide decals.
