This is my contribute to the Memory of SimonT. It’s the 1984 Italeri release of the QL Series Bedford Truck. I will be adding some aftermarket stuff to it. See you in 3 weeks 4932E37D-695A-46F7-809F-3222F21B228C.jpeg

Lee I built the Airfix version of this. Despite its age its not a bad kit a bit of flash here and there but nothing to bad.

Guys I think I’ll be going back to this for Simon’s GB. I’ve been through a lot for me these past couple months and I really don’t feel like even building anything. I can’t concentrate on much scratch building at this time with the brain fog and anxiety the Covid side effects have left me. So this will be a simple build. I might add the 6 pounder with it. Thanks for understanding.

Lee mate, nothing to be apologetic for. You have had Covid. It is far more than a simple illness. You will improve with time, but time is what it will take. Don’t push it and follow medical advice.

Hi Lee
Sorry you're still feeling the effects of the virus but at least you're feeling up to working a bit at the bench. As others have said this is a rotten illness so take it easy and be kind to yourself. Looking forward to the build.
Have a great Christmas and I'm sure things will be better next year.
Jim

Looks a good choice Lee, just get yourself well, just do a bit of modelling when you're feeling up to it.

Hi Lee, just caught up to this. Good to hear you are on the mend and starting to take an interest in modeling again. Like the others have already said, take it easy and have a play at it when you feel up to it............it's a long way to February.

Si. Thanks for stopping by. I look at this at least once a week trying to get the mojo to build it. I’ve lost something while I had the virus I don’t understand it.


Steve. Happy New year to you also I hate to disappoint but I haven’t been the Canvas is blank and I have no will to pic up the brush. You take care my friend it’s getting crazy there.

John. I guess it great news. Maybe when I can get back to breathing normal I’ll get the mojo. Take care my friend

HI Lee
Dont put yourself down. Covid is a nasty thing and it takes a fair while to fully recover. Just keep looking and one day you will pick it up.....hang in there fella, we can wait.
