  1. You would say for a bus ‘Park Royal PD2’ for example. The body was slightly different, We had similar age Massey bodied buses, same basic body side by side the Guy was slightly different to the Leyland version. So we had a ‘Massey body Guy’ and a ‘Massey body PD3’
  2. Fairly sure I’ve some pics of PD2s bare. If you Google scrap leyland PD2 you may get some shots of the underside while they are being broken
  3. Leave the extra cross member out, the chassis is from the rigid version and has been used in the short tractor unit and the long rigid versions. you don’t need the centre holder for the prop on short chassis
  4. There was a company that converted Bedford QL 4x4s to tractor units and rigid S by replacing the front axles with non-driven Bedford O type ones, Candelants in Bedfordshire I’ve a few pics in my collection. in Holland and mainland Europe Terberg used 6x6 GMCs with locally built cabs in their early history. Southport buses had a few QL Bedford 4x4s conversations to beach buses. I have a friend who is building one in 1:1 scale. Look for Southport beach bus on Google etc other than that many big gun and tank transporters ended up with heavy haulage and as recovery trucks.
  5. Oxford do lots, modern and older but also give Road Transport Images LINK a look, they do resin kits and you buy the chassis, cab, body and wheels septal you can configure exactly what you want. Again old and modern stuff including decals
  6. Both mine are the same grey as the chassis. Most of the time they don’t get masked off when the chassis is painted after it leaves the factory.
  7. That is lovely. Do like the effects. One of my favourite foreign trucks is that big old Scanny
  8. I’ve got a 1:76 resin kit of the Half cab I can get pics and measurements off until I am close to the 1:1 again
  9. Aston Manor Road Transport museum has a few Birmingham buses, and I’d recommend a visit. some pics from last year’s running day https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.742711956184849&type=3
  10. You could try De-Rooy as I’m sure they did lots of Dakar DAF conversions
  11. Yep, and I’ve written for truck model world lots, and did the news and some reviews for them. Think someone from guideline has called me already
  12. That’s a great truck to build, a friend has a mk1 mid-lift and I had a drive and it’s a cracking truck. I plan to do a model of his at some point. There is a company in France (arm) that do the suspension in resin (could have saved breaking two kits open) not great quality but OK. I’ll be watching this. makes me feel old but I remember when the AE was launched
  13. Plates are right a 72/3 car registered in East Sussex
