Supplied in a small zip loc bag with a hand printed header card attached with staples.
It is moulded in one solid piece from resin with very little flash.
This will fit the Airfix 1/72 GMC truck and looks like it may well fit either the Bedford QLD or Opel Blitz although I have not actually tried it. Those trucks may need some work around the wheel arches in the flat bed in order for it to fit snugly.
When carefully painted they are very good for filling the back of the trucks to give them that 'used' look.
Accessory below:

and here it is painted up and then installed in the GMC truck:

That looks good painted up.
I received a couple recently and I am quite pleased with them. However, they won't fit in the Airfix QLD without a bit of work because of the wheel arches. They will work best with trucks that have a flat load bed.
Cheers

If it fills a deuce and a half like that, surely it's too long for a Blitz?

Possibly, but it should be easy enough to cut a few crates or drums from the end to make fit!

An idea has just occurred to me :idea:
If you were modelling trucks with tilts open at the back, one of these loads cut in half could be used to give the impression of loads in two trucks.

Nice paintjob. :thumb: It Looks a good Addition to the truck..and it would be usefull for creating supply dumps for dios or wargaming.
Had a look at their stuff..some neat (and pricewise good) stuff..though I´m not sure where I´d use WFM72027, 1/72nd scale Bathtime :lol:

I met Ian and Lily in Edinburgh in 2014 (after a long internet friendship) and, after a great day at the museum, Ian took me to the local modelling club meeting :cheers:
Ian is a modeller first and foremost and I think that the Friendship Models range reflects that.
I don't think that I could find a use for WFM72027 either, but I'm sure it appears in some interesting dioramas :D
Cheers
