Hi, I am scratch building a AEC Matador 0854 with a Coles Crane in 1:24 scale, This is going to go in a diorama taking out a Typhoon engine somewhere in France late 1944 early 1945. I have the book Taking the rough with the smooth by Steve Richards, can anyone tell me what the colour of the unit would have been? I dont think it was blue!! There is no 1;24 scale body of a Matador 0854 so I bought the AEC Militant Mk1 6 x6 from Howard at KFS, had to lengthen the chassis to make it 14'-9 1/8" wheelbase. I removed the wood of the chassis and replaced with channel I made out of sheet styrene, then made the bottom turntable out of 1/8 sheet and turned it to shape. Until next time, Regards Richard
