Bedford OYD


Recommended Posts

These are a couple of photos of a probably 30+ year old 1/35th scale model of what I think is an early Bedford OYD in a French (?) company called Phebus Models. The last time I checked their website they do not seem to have this in their range of resin and PE kits.

It has been on a shelf untouched for years. It is need of a re-build and a bit of TLC as there are bits missing so I have a few questions if any of you guys who have restored the real thing.

1. How is the tilt supposed to be attached?

2. Should the cargo bed be sheet metal or wooden planks?

3. Mirrors, round or oblong?

4. What would the bridge weight be?

Hopefully one day someone will release this as a plastic kit. Anyone Bronco? MiniArt? Gecko as a follow up to their MW range?

Thanks for any help or suggestions.
