Hi from England. I've been following the forum for some time but just got the courage to post one of my builds. It's a 1/24th Bedford O series made by Emhar. Built from the box with Military Modelling style painting and weathering. Hope you like it :rolleyes:

Good looking weathering. Is that 1/35 scale?

Very nice, looks like most trucks of the time, hard worked, and never washed, I was thinking of getting one of these, but the longer flat bed, what they like to build ?

Very nice. I was also curious about this kit. Is it a curbside?

Welcome Andrew, your Bedford is really impressive. I'd never heard of Emhar before these came along, I wonder what else they have up their sleeve? I fancy trying one of these. Isn't this truck in this month's edition of Truck Model World?

Thanks for the kind words!

In response, it is 1/24th scale. I don't know if Emhar are planning any others but I hope so, they build very well, very good parts fit. They are not 'curbside', they have full engine and chassis detail. Finally, yes, I was lucky enough to have the model featured in TMW this month!!

Very good job. I love those older weather beatin rigs!!! I've thought about buying one of these rigs and now I'm convenced to do it, looking at the detail. Seen a few of them in Europe when in the US Military.

Very good work! It looks realistic. The rolled down side window and wiper streaks are nice touches that add a lot of realism.

Andrew,

This is an exceptional build. Very Impressive. What techniques did you use for the weathering? I have checked my local models supply outfit and they have both version of the Bedford. After seeing yours I think I will get both for some future projects.

Best Wishes

Dave

Nicely done, Andrew! Military weathering techniques can add a good amount realism and that is evidenced in your build! Great job!
