Here is a conversion from the Airfix Bedford MWD into a water tanker, I have shown it with the original.
The fuel bowser is being repainted.

I see you will now need 2 halls at Telford - hohoho.
Not sure if I am going to the show this year, but think I need to go just to see ALL your models in one place.

Here is the converted Albion together with a trailer. The trailer was scratch built from plastic card.


This is what I built at the club modelling day - another Nissen hut. It still needs windows doors, end walls and painting

Load on the back of the Albion, it is a Hurricane, this may be sacrilege to some of our members -I will send Neil a copy as he never looks on here.
The Albion is being refuelled.
Yes, the wings are under the tarp.
