BIG X

British K2 Ambulances - 11th Armoured Division

Recommended Posts

Howdy folks - I haven't been around here for a few weeks as I have recently been having a massive amount of fun in the Airfix: The Golden Years GB…

 

https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/forum/626-airfix-the-golden-years-gb/

 

…however I know a lot of folk don’t tend to look at the group builds – unless it is of special interest to their ‘field of expertise’.  The GB is covering all aspects of ‘old Airfix’ which includes a lot of very basic vehicles and the like. So I thought I would pop my vehicle results here - where they might be better seen and in case they are of interest to anyone in the future.

 

I did a couple of K2 ambulances - from the RAF emergency vehicles set.  There is lots of controversy over whether the RAF ever actually ever used K2s - so I have pressed them into service with the 11th armoured division - who definitely did.  They were built OOB with just lenses for the headlights and a bit of acetate for windscreens.  The drivers came from PSC - as the Airfix drivers were more flash than flesh.

 

As always in this area - constructive comment would be very welcome - so here we go...

There is a WIP thread - which you can find here...

 

 

They were a basic build and went together quite well for their age - I hope you like them.

 

It's good to be back - Steve

Very nice.

Thanks widow - they were a good bit of fun.  If I was to do them again though I would definitely go for the aftermarket wheels that are available and maybe have the back doors open - with  couple of patients inside.

 

Thanks for looking and commenting - Steve

Superb. Have a couple of them myself. An oldie, but with a bit of work......

I have to say I rushed them a bit and I know they could be better - I'd like to do them again at some point - with the back doors open and some better wheels.  Hopefully they will appear in the new 'Classic Airfix' range - at a decent price.
