Bought this beauty today at the NEC Birmingham (England) toy fair. It is a true 1:43rd scale commercial vehicle. The model is one of a part work distributed in France by Altaya. This explains why this British lorry model is LHD and in a French livery.

I am sure some of you will see similarities with Chevrolet trucks. See Karl's Tekno post.

You're building up a nice little collection of Bedford Tx coal trucks (lorries/camions)! How many more x's are there?

Many thanks - the back drop is a commercial one my wife uses for her dolls.

Looks great for my cars and lorries too.

Cheers Chris
