Emhar 1/24 Bedford flatbed

Hi all, I managed to squeeze in one more build thanks to this year's Blitzenbuild. In one of the earlier Blitzes I tried to build the Bedford Wrecker but only just failed to complete in time, so I wanted a rematch! This time around I built the dropside version and converted to a flatbed with wooden deck, which I've done 3 times in a row now. Next one will be different 🙂 

 

The Emhar kits are well engineered, the Bedford not too complicated as it's an old truck (but so nice!), so if you hurry a little it can be done in a Blitzbuild. Total build time was 20 hours exactly. I'm happy with the result, there aren't too many "Blitzbuild blemishes" so I'll gladly add this one to the shelf. I have one more of these Emhar kits, the tanker, which will receive proper care once I get around to it. 

 

Anyway, here are some pics of the finished article. Paints are Tamiya Semi Gloss Black and Tamiya Sky Grey coated in Tamiya X22, and later brushed on Vallejo Gloss Varnish to seal in the decals. The chrome bits are brushed with Greenstuffworld chrome (now my favourite chrome!).

Lovely finish to the lorry, I used to drive a similar type in the 60s delivering milk. Your comments on the emahar being well engineered went down well with me, wife got me rhe Emhar Bedford O Series SWB Recovery Truck Model Kit 1:24 as a xmas present, I look forward to starting the build after my current project.

That's very nice of her! I Blitzed that Recovery truck last year, they look real nice next to eachother on the shelf. Maybe these build logs will be of some use to you. They're not as detailed as usual because of Blitzbuild speed, but they might be helpful anyway.
