Airfix Bedford QLs

Just completed a pair of the new Airfix QLT/QLDs. A great kit, with hardy any issues in construction, just fixing the windows in place and I suspect the tarpaulin on the QLT is a bit fragile. The decals were also a great selection allowing a good range of options.

As per most of my Northwest Europe British, these are marked up for the Guards Armoured Division and the QLTs for the 5th battalion Coldstream Guards.

Also note GB&SB are selling them at £7.50.

I saw these the other day but was put off by the 1/76th scale.

Would they look OK with Valiant figures?

Nice work BTW

Nice paintjob on those! They look splendid are they 1/72 or 1/76?

Sorry, just read the comments they're 1/76! mmm tempted to pick some up.

During which period were these trucks used?

The Belgian - used from 1941 onwards

Boggler, it depends, valiant are very large for 1/72, but the QLs are not a small vehicle so they might look OK, sorry I don't have any to compare.
