Airfix Bedford QL


Recommended Posts

I just wondered why the Bedford QL has 2 different RAF number plates (1 above the wheel and 1 on the back door and cab door) and the AEC only has 1 type (on the front and back)


To be absolutely accurate it hasn't got number plates they are census numbers!

I think postwar they standardised on the front/back presentation, and the old position numbers (cab side) were just left on. These numbers were superceded with the current Military number plate system presented NN/ LL/ NN early postwar, so the postwar Blue/yellow colour scheme with census numbers gives a narrow time period in existance of just a couple of years.
