IBG 1/35 Scammell Pioneer breakdown tractor


Recommended Posts

Hi all, I just finished this for Big and British GB.

I've always liked the peculiar shape of the cab and the general "impressiveness" of these big Scammells. You know I like to civilianize my trucks and this time my eye fell on a restored version in black and yellow. 

 

WIP can be found here: 

I liked the build, these IBG kits are very good value for money. I've built several of their small scale trucks, which are always nice, and this build was my first of their 1/35 scale offerings. I have this same kit in 1/72 so that will be fun to build at some point. 

 

I did no detailing, though there's certainly room for it. I just wanted a good looking Scammell in my cabinet 🙂 

 

Paints are Tamiya's X-8 Lemon Yellow and Semi Gloss Black for the chassis. Rubber Black for the tyres, Medium Grey for the interior. Some Vallejo paints here and there.

The above pictures were taken later, after I located decals for it. They were in an unexpected place, they're leftovers from the Emhar Bedford Wrecker and are perfect for this build. The rest of the pictures are sans decals.

This looks great Jerons,  what a cracking build and colourscheme.  The IBG kits are nice, you would like the Bedford QLR as would make a cracking civilian camper version !!!

Great work on the Scammell.

Wow that's bright! It'll certainly stand out in your display. That's a good thing because it looks a very good build and should deserve the attention it will attract.

That must have filled up the driveway nicely on family visits 🙂

They used to have a house in a smallish village and with all the other kit they had it did

If I could get Village Photos to work  I would put some photos up

Hi all, I managed to locate the leftover decals from the Emhar Bedfore Wrecker build and they're perfect for the Scammell, despite being 1/24 scale. Just goes to show how big that thing is. I took some new pictures!
