First model from Spain

Post by Richard B. »

Not much but a beginning at least :D

This was a Corgi AEC box van, I added window/shutters and a little stowage and have painted her up as a command caravan for my desert British.

I think it looks OK :)

Certainly doesn`t look out of place among my other British HQ and soft skins

Very nice, Richard. I think it would do quite nicely as an Italian caravan as well.

I used the same truck to make "Italian" troop carriers.

Gary Richards said exactly the same thing over on FB :)

I remember these photos from the first time around - smashing conversions (mine is no way as complicated or detailed)

Lovely job on the conversion and I was going to say good fleet of British command vehicles, but after seeing Davids fleet of Italian conversions, I have to congratulate you on a lovely squadron of command vehicles for "sailing" across the desert!!

PS where did you (David) find so many vehicles to convert!!???

Alan's handiwork Carl, not mine. Seems to have become confused with all the "quotes". They may not be technically accurate, but they certainly look the part.

Carl, I got the basic trucks on either e-bay or car boot sales usually as part of a job lot.
Corgi Cameo and Lledo trucks form a significant part of my "generic" transport fleets.
