Scruffy looking Work in progress on the Austin K2/Y Ambulance. I'll be getting this made in resin. Over 13,500 were made by Austin, Bedford and Morris between 1938 and 1945, and they served in all theatres. Many were left behind at Dunkirk, and subsequently used by the Germans. The vehicle is best known as the Katy that starred in Ice Cold in Alex.
The model needs the wheel hubs adding, and will include metal headlamps and a steering wheel.
It will be available in the US as well from my good friends at Company B in a short time.
I thought that the vehicle would be useful for adding to the roadside detritus of 1940, but also as a converted troop carrier for those VBCW types who are always on the lookout for something different to convert for their mad insurrections.
