    Here is my Bedford QL Portee wearing the markings of the Left Flank Company - 2nd Bn Scots Guards - 201st Guards Motor Brigade - 1st Armoured Div in Libya 1942.
    The chassis and cab are a modified Airfix QLT with the body scratch-built. The 6 Pdr A/T Gun is from Milicast, the transfers are from Aleran and P/E from Dan Taylor Models (mirrors and wipers) and Hauler (Sand channels). Tarps are tissue, helmet and rifles from Bull Models.

    Thanks, guys and Owen....I do other theatres as well but really like the BEF period. Next up is a BEF Morris Quad with a 4.5" Howitzer.

    Great portee, Neil (from here in Little Rock). I'll look forward to the 4.5 howitzer. But be aware I have no references here with me!
