And here are some simple conversion ideas once you have completed your first QLD and QLT, i really must look back at the text i put in its not really a case of grammer but i suspect like many of us the fingers are not made for keyboards, well not mine anyway

I noticed on the QL-D version, (top photo from Les) that the tilt has a wrap around the front whereas the new Airfix model has an open front !
Think i shall have mine 'wrapped,'  around on the models i make . .

I mentiond somewhere in the threads re drawings to convert the new Airfix Bedford QL. Since then good friend Geoff Lacy has added a set of the QL to his range and i think in fairness to Geoff i should only print one example  and advise modellers to contact him to obtain his list which runs in to hundreds and hundreds of drawings from all nation and all types.
We must keep in mind that only a few people provide us with the drawings we need and i am sure most are aware that the John Church range is now in the hands of B W Models. Once again this is a large range but as John has now had to stop the work no new ones can be expected so support the sources.
To contact Geoff send a A4 SAE to 315A South Lane, New Malden Surrey, KT3 5RR
cheers
