28mm Bedford QLD Lorry

Hello all,

Work has continued to keep me very busy, however I have been make progress.  I'll have a new set of British and German WW2 vehicles done shortly to show off and Roy Scaife dropped off his Bolt Action US army for me to take pictures of so I can do a post on them.

I've been wanting to have proper lorries for my British army - specifically the Bedford QLD - but there are no 28mm models of this vehicle anywhere out there.  Also Adam Clark turned me on to a 3D modeler and the website --- they have all sorts of cool 3D printed stuff for sale there!  I paid to have the 3D model created for the vehicle ... and here is the result ...

I think it came out great.  I asked that the canopy be removable and so that can be bought separately from the main truck.  I've ordered eight of them and look forward to seeing the finished product.

For those of you who are interested in purchasing these vehicles for your own collections (I get no money from this, just so you all know) ...

The Bedford QLD in 1:56 scale (28mm) can be purchased at this link:
The canopy for the vehicle can be purchased here:

More to come soon!

  1. This is fantastic, definitely saving to purchasing one for my force. Are you intending to commission the QLT (same Bedford truck but extended for troop carrying [up to 29 men in Bolt Action])? I have a vision of two squads of my Free French "Senegalese Bataillon de Marche" ( the guys with the tough fighters rule) pouring out of one!

    Maybe we can split the cost of commissioning the Bedford QLT--if it's not too much. I can't think of a better way to give back to the Bolt Action community than by helping us all get better access to underrepresented models
