A.E.C. Dorchester

Recommended Posts

I am doing a parallel build of AFV Club 1/35th scale A.E.C. Dorchester LP and HP.

Can anyone help me with any photos or know of any restored vehicles.

I do have the drawings pack from The Tank Museum which will be a great help.

Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions.

 

Cheers

There was Dorchester in the land warfare hall at Duxford a number of years ago not sure if it's still there some one else on here will know. A quick google search using Dorchester armoured command vehicle brought up a whole shed load of photos.

Kevin, as far as I am aware there is only one survivor with the early / type 1 body without the generator compartment louvres as currently modelled by AFV Club. This is the one still retaining the sunshade frame in the Royal Signals Museum at Blandford. All other survivors are of the later / type II body with the louvres on rear and side panels.The breakdown of parts for the model suggests that the later type could be offered in due course.

If you go onto the Braille Scale Discussion Group on Missing-Lynx.com - http://www.network54.com/Forum/47210 - and do a search for "Dorchester" sorted by date it will throw up a number of threads from November 2017 onwards containing information and photos of Dorchesters. You'll also find a load of posts prior to this, but I'm not familiar with their content.

 

Hope this helps.
