Queen's Jubilee Austin K2 Ambulance 1/76
« on: May 28, 2022, 07:36:32 PM »
Hi All,

As part of the Queens Platinum Jubilee celebration, Driffield where the club meets are holding a Flower Festival in All Saint's Church from 2nd to 5th June 2022, organised by Driffield in Bloom.
Club's, Organisation's, and Local Businesses' have been invited to join in, and submit a Floral Display celebrating to Queen's Platinum Jubilee.
On behalf of the Club, I will be putting together a display with a nod to our hobby.

This will be a representation of the the Austin K2 Ambulance pictured with the then Princess Elizabeth during her service with the Auxiliary Territorial Service in 1944. The kit is the Airfix example, built straight from the box with the exception of changed serial and unit markings, colour scheme. The figure is modified from the Airfix DH Heron 'Air Hostess' with modified arm, jacket, peaked hat from plasticard.
Picture of the Ambulance and Figure so far. Will post the finished Floral display complete with said photo and club information just before going on display in the church, or you can just pop into the Church to see it.
Cheers,
Bigkev

Thanks for your comments.
Here are a couple of pictures taken this morning at home after the flowers have been prepared.
Thanks to my lovely wife, Christine who did all the arranging and bows.
Will post some final pictures when it is in situ at the church later today.
