You have made a really good job of that little Bedford, I didn't realize that the kit was 1/24 when I have seen it advertised, now you have got me thinking, I really like it, well done Pierre.

Thanks.
I am sure all of you can make the kit look way better then mine.

There is one thing that makes this kit a little more fun then others, it is that the winchdrums can rotate in the boom, its the only way to attach the string to them also.
Both drums has about 1.5meter (around 4feet) of string on them so it took a little time to make the string look good on the drums.
For anyone willing to put in some extra work i am sure it will be easy to modify it so the wheel on the boom can lower/raise it by turning it.
There are already threads molded in to the long screw the wheel sits on.

The lid on the toolbox in the bed just need some real hinges on it so it looks natural when opening it, i just placed mine on without glueing it in place
I was planning to add ignitionscables from the ignitioncoil to the distributor and then to the sparkplugs (its old enough to have a gas engine and not diesel) but i did not have thin enough steelwire to simulate them.
