I am in need of plenty of parts, so if anyone knows where to get plenty of 1x1x3 & 1x1x3 red doors plus other bits, I'd like to know!!
Quoting calvin fox
rik love the model i may be able to help you with the doors as i bought about 30 pairs just for a few with the fire mark on the doors so i have a few spare if your intrested in contacting me calvin
Yes that would be great, thanks Calvin!
Give me your details & we'll try to come to an arrangement! Not only do I need doors, I also need plenty on misc. red parts, but more of the same size wheel & tyre assy too!! I've also in the process of building a Leyland/Metz TL, a Dennis F12 PE & a Bedford HU with plans to also build a Dennis F12 ET & a Fordson 7V WrT!!
Thanks James, it is still in the development stage so I may well do some pruning!! I have another 3 in build, more to follow soon!! What I need is a "one stop shop" where I can get all my parts at once. For example, I require at least 12 pairs of 1x1x3 red doors!!
its great to see retro british rigs appearing here, oldest i go is 88 lol.
its very detailed but does look slighty boxy.
i love the uniforms thou, the helmets are fantastic, i have great trouble painting rank markings on mine.
for your 1x3x1 doors, try lego pick a brick, or bricklink.
personally i go for bricklink these days cos of legos prices but.
