A Commer 15cwt dropside builders lorry. Modelled on one that used to be in my village using a much-modified Commer Superpoise cab and a greatly reduced CH5 chassis. The body was scratchbuilt and the wheels are from the Langley BMC LD van.

Leyland Interim Beaver, Beverleys Beers. After adding about 1mm. to the bottom of the cab and leading edge of the mudguard, it was fitted to an RTI chassis with Langley wheels and a scratchbuilt dray body. The trailer is a much-improved Base Toys item, and the barrel load is cut down from Trackside castings, with EFE crates on the trailer. The actual vehicle worked for the Wakefield-based brewery until preservation. It now resides at the Manchester Bus Museum, and is often rallied in the North of England.

Bedford TM artic tipper. Built some years ago using one of the early wide-cab castings, this one needed some reworking around the bumper and step area to get it looking like the prototype.

The model sits on an old Motorway Models chassis, and the trailer is scratchbuilt on a Langley tandem bogie. The real "Midnight Tramp" was operated by Barnsley's infamous Bob Norman, better known for his distinctive fleet of Mack trucks, and was a Detroit Diesel 2-stroke engine.
RTI ERF Sabrina cab mounted on a
Langley-based chassis with scratch-built body and details. The cab has
been modified to the single headlight version, and represents one of a
pair of 100-ton ballast tractors supplied to the Parkgate Iron and
Steel Company of Rotherham. Interestingly, the bodies are still in
use, now fitted to modern Volvos at Tata Steel

An early Bedford SA with a high-volume stepframe van trailer in the livery of Ferguson Radio and Television. Entirely built from RTI components with the exception of the wheels, which are ABS Streetscene Bristol K which have the characteristic six-webbed hub on the fronts, just like Bedfords had. I worked from a black and white photo, and relied on other people's memories and guesswork for the colour scheme - no doubt someone will now tell me it's wrong !
