Same question as DA ... what scale? And have you got a picture of the box art?

I have just put this one on Lay-by at my local HS ($120)
I'll be following this thread very closely, as I'll be building mine for a friend who has several of these. ;)

Crisp, very crisp!! I remember riding around in one of them as a young kid picking up hay. Last I seen it was rotting away under a barberry hedge.
Looking forward to your next update!!

Some more great detail, very nice.

What did you use for the wire / wire wrap? The scale looks great.

Cheers Michael

hi Michael
the wiring I used I found at jaycar
it is a combination of 0.5mm 0.3mm and 0.25mm copperwire
wasn't too expensive either..
on other models I use different weights of fishing wire and also fuse wire
spotlight also sells bead wire which I have used previously
hope this helps

That is brilliant mate. Love the tyres. Love the whole darn thing. Inspiring.
And if that's your first time doing washing, weathering and dry brushing then we can look forward to some mighty fine builds.
Great stuff!

I've always had a bit of a soft spot for the O series Bedfords and after seeing this I'm definitely got to have to get myself at least one of these to have a go at. Looking really good so far.

Looking great, really like the idea of having some wooden planks replaced in the deck.
