Oh man, that's a beast.....Your paintwork and weathering are stupendous!  :worthy:

 

I've got a massive soft spot for the Scammell Pioneer, back in my 'naughty boy' days one of these things (painted sky blue, with a log-cabin on the back) provided easy access to a rave site that the local plod were utterly convinced they had well & properly road-blocked.....Hedge vs. Scammell Pioneer, there can be only one outcome!  :lol:

I'll shortly be acquiring another one of these for a long term project i have in mind in which it'll be converted to a fair ground truck from yesteryear, 

Thanks all

Sounds like a great plan, definitely something different :thumbsup:

 

Be sure and do a WIP where we can find it.

It's in a lot of small details Glynn, the rope that ties up the motorbike and has started to unravel, the tea cup on the running board, the tarps etc. I love it, gorgeous work.

First class Glynn. Glad to see that you've got some tension in the cable. Something that a lot of people miss, and it spoils he appearance.

 

John.

Thanks john, i dont like cables, and ariel lines on ww2 subjects slack either

Superb build Glynn. Love the Beeza.

 

John.

Gotta be honest john, i saw that in a magazine in  whs and loved it back when i started this build, i always intended to put a mc on the back

The small details which elevate a model to the level of a replica of the real vehicle: that cup of tea is just waiting for a squaddie to come back and finish it as soon as he's checked that the BSA is securely fastened to the back of the wagon!

Richard, too kind mate, we all pick things up from others, great forum, and andy's scammell build has a tea cup on it and it was a tip of the cap to him for sending me a lot of reference pictures, but the bsa did take some stringing up to be fair,

Masterful work Glynn. Well worth all the hard work you put into it.

 

Andy:cat:

Andy, cheers for the photos they came in very handy, hope you don't  mind me including the tea cup, a tip of the cap,

Hi Glynn,

 

I have finished mine and it is in RAF livery. I haven't bothered continuing with my build post as I was "doing it in the wrong livery and with vehicle numbers that were incorrect" etc.  Beaten by rivet counters!

It's an authentic work of art! It will not be an AFV, but I would not mind having an equal one in my collection!

Top notch job, :goodjob:

Cheers Glynn :yes:
