This should get a few of you going, and yes I know the rope isnt on it. Build without the canvas, its another from InAccurate Armour.
Outstanding work as usual Si, top class!I managed to take some snaps of the other 4 tonner, which is from Firing Line. This is the first one I built. Some repairs to do as its lay around for a couple fo years - windscreen wipers need putting back on.
Anyway - here it is

So this is the Firing Line wagon and InAccurate Armour wagon.
I had one of the first 10 Bedford 4 tonners out of the mold on their production line when they launched the kit. There was a fault with the mold which meant when they sprung the cabs, it want formed properly. At the time the kit was retailing for 100 sheets. I wrote to the lad that runs InAccurate Armour and pointed out the problem, so he sent me another cab. Same problem, so he sends me another. Same problem. At this point he accuses me of being a liar on a public forum. Mine was one of the first builds of this kit, so you find manufacturers follow builds avidly as they drive orders (the Wokka build had about 250,000 hits on two modelling forums, and a paint manufacturer withdrew a line of paints, refunded people who had bought the paint and relaunched it with a new formulae as a result of problems with their product which I commented on in the Wokka build - the paint didnt cure properly so it fcuked people builds when they painted them). You will find most modellers suck up to manufacturers as they get loads of freebees. I dont subscribe to that behaviour as as far as I'm concerned, people are paying a lot of bloody money for this stuff and if its shite, it should be called outNice builds. Just curious, but as you're obviously determined to slag off Accurate Armour, why did you bother to build theirs and what's wrong with it?
I ask because I'd like to build an MK myself sometime, and depending on what's so bad about the AA version, might look elsewhere for one.
Soggy cam net. Only think that smells better than that is a mess tin full of breakfast on a cold day where you can see your breath in the air, with a hot brew and a fag in your hand. Eat, drink, smoke, eat drink, smoke. Carry on in your own time.Just found this part of the forum and although I've inherited a Titanic model to build, I don't think I can post pictures on here with this calibre of stuff!
Great build @Simmerit, I was going to ask if it comes with a sachet of "Eau de mouldy cam net." That, along with diesel fumes and a permanently banging head are what springs to mind when I think of BAOR.
