The Oxford Bedford MWD is already part of our 1:76 Military series and the Royal Engineers livery was the first to appear, way back in Issue 147 of The Globe. Now N gauge collectors can add this newly tooled 1:148 scale miniature to your WWII line up. The tooling is based on the original second phase Bedford MWD vehicle, which had a closed cab as opposed to the earlier ones with open cabs.

The Bedford MWD was the most used transport vehicle by the Allies during the war and between 1939 and 1945, Vauxhall Motors supplied vast numbers to the armed services. Our example is a replica of the truck that served with 505 Company Royal Engineers, part of the 50th Northumbrian Division who used it during their D-Day to Operation Market Garden deployment at the end of September 1944. Following that, it was transferred to Corps Engineers. It ended the war in Germany, building the bailey bridges over the Rhine.
Our Bedford MWD is decorated with the body and wheels in olive green, the cab roof and rear 'canvas' roof are both matt black and the remainder of the canopy is painted quarry grey. The cab interior and the chassis are also both black. All the additional decoration to the bonnet, front wings, cab doors and the rear of the vehicle is reproduced in the fine detail of the larger scale model.
