See http://www.thepartsbox.com/

click on resin kits for a nice Bedford van. The Bedford S cab doesn't look too shabby either.

Have a look at: www.model-cars.org.uk - some interesting body kits there!



Purchased the following from them, very helpful in all aspects.

BEDFORD CA VAN BODY 1/24

MINI PICKUP 1/24 BODYSHELL

FORD CENTRE DOOR MODEL T BODY 1/25


The bottom two are sold out at present, the Bedford Van is still available, requires a chassis to mount it on, from memory which is somewhat hazy these days! believe it was from a Jeep kit, but your man at Model Cars will point you in the right direction.

Hello again! I got one of the parts box CA vans about 18 months ago. I think Andy at model-cars may have had one at some time too! The parts box one comes with a basic chassis and some great looking wheels.

clearly cheaper to get the body from the UK but it wasn't available when I ordered. The body was apparently taken off a diecast and is pretty thick resin, especially the front which meant when I drilled the grille out, it took ages! I also altered the shape of the front screens as they didn't have the correct shape - mine could do with another attempt I think. Looks quite smart finished though!
