BEDFORD OYD, 1:72 scale,
"To achieve the look of this finished BEDFORD OYD Coal Merchants model, I started with an effective primer to ensure a good base for painting. Choosing historically accurate colours, I applied a matte blue for the cab and a wood brown finish for the truck bed, giving it that aged, well-used appearance befitting a military vehicle of the era. Delicate dry-brushing highlighted the details, adding depth and enhancing the textures. The coal sacks received different shades of grey to capture the look of fabric and coal, carefully painted to bring out the realism. As a finishing touch, a light weathering was administered to create the impression of wear and grit from regular use during wartime." - Stuart
