Default A tribute to my grandfather.

This a Airfix 1/76 scale Austin A2 ambulance in desert scheme (North Africa). My Grandfather was a senior medic and drove around in one of these, he was shot at, captured and released and all with just a red-cross armband and a aid kit.

Not an easy kit for crampy, shaky old hands and ailing eyes but I have done my best in this scale-3 inches long, 1.5 inches high and 1 inch wide...so really tiny!

Hi Eddie, I love the pics! Could I just trouble you to post a link rather than the actual pic please

You're a very talented man

Nice model. All thats needed here is Sylvia Simms,John Mills,Anthony Andrews,& Anthony Quayl and you have the cast for "Ice Cold In Alex".
Use to model things like that myself for years but eyes not good now for the fine detail

Yep, correct Geoff my mistake.

I love Ice Cold In Alex, great film was tempted to do a scene from it with this model.
