Kit Preview : 1/76 Convoy exModelTransport Bedford QL 6pdr portee



This is an old ModelTransport resin kit of an interesting subject. It was used in the desert but that's all I know about it. The model comes without the gun. Airfix had the only 1/76 6 pounder gun for a long time but it has been largely superseded by a beautiful resin model from Milicast and a metal model from AB.
For reference all I could find are some nicely done 1/35 Italeri models: link 1, link 2.

Not a lot to say. The fit is not stellar, there will be some sanding to get the cab in place. The two piece rear bed is a good idea, allowing more detail on both sides. The sides are probably better rebuilt using plastic strip. They will be straighter.
