An obscure wish, but planning ahead for the layout project I always wanted, a Crosville Seddon Pennine Dual Purpose single decker, or in Crosville speak, an "EPG", in 4mm scale.

Has anyone seen a HO (or 00) scale Landrkver Defender 90 with a metal back that has windows and the small windows in the roof? Ideally painted blue but I can sort that bit myself :)

Cotswold did a half decent kit some years ago which with a little effort could be turned into a pretty good model. They regularly turn up second hand, I've seen them on stands at toy fairs, exhibitions and on a certain on-line auction site.

Does anyone do a Bedford TK in N scale?  Kit or RTR would do.

I'd like a 1.76 Bedford TK flatbed or coal lorry. I know theyv've been done in the past, but can I find one now?

I've entertained thoughts of converting a JB Models (latterly Airfix) Land Rover into an Austin Gypsy. Given the amount of 1/76 Land Rover varieties available R-T-R and in kit form, I'm surprised no manufacturer has yet produced a Gypsy - or for that matter, a Mini-Moke.

Wouldn't mind a decent Morris LD van. I know there's a diecast one about but it looks overscale and chunky for finescale 1/76 purposes.

Rod Parker did one in whitemetal, and MTS did a plastic kit, both 1/76. Both a bit scarce now, but sometimes turn up.

The MTS plastic kit is quite good but the interior is a bit sparse.

If your prepared to accept a model slightly underscale theres quite a few models in 1/24 scale.

This is the PG models cab married to a modified BT models box van chassis and enlarged body. This will gain some Harrods logos eventually.

And whilst being worked on.....I changed my mind what it represent hence the change of colour.
