Transport Model Photos
This 1/76 scale model was completed late in 2011. The starting point was a Milicast Bedford OY 3 ton G.S. lorry kit in resin. The wheels were changed to civilian type (twin on the rear), and the tank was modified from an early Base Toys item. The bonnet was modelled in the open position to show the wonderful engine detail included in the kit. The livery of the wartime Pool Petroleum Board was chosen for its simplicity. I think the mechanic figure came from an old Airfix military kit, and has had the position of the arms altered to suit the model.
