Please note that this item can only be delivered to US addresses

The summer of 1940 was vital, not just for the survival of the RAF and Great Britain, but also the free world. While the Hurricanes and Spitfires of the RAF played an invaluable role, the hard work of the ground crews and their support cannot be under estimated. The Bedford QL and AEC Matador featured here kept the RAF's fighters supplied and ready to fight.

Further my review the personnel are made out of a different plastic- more flexible, darker in colour than the normal light grey . I'm having real problems with paint adherence, have washed the parts and tried several different sorts of primer and acrylic paints but nothing stays on. Any advice please on what to do?!

Great BOB Kit

This kit is a really good and enjoyable build. It is a great addition to any Airfield dioramas/displays. Wouldn't recommend this kit to people who are new to building these models as the vehicles are slightly tricky, but other than that it is easy and fantastic to finish.

BOB set

Nice set but the personnel seem to be a different more flexible plastic which will not take any sort of primer. The plastic seems to be flexible. Can anyone tell me what they have used to paint the figures? Everything I have tried just flakes off!

Another good set

Again easy to do, very handy as a compliment to airfield setups. not liking the choice of paint sceme, changed it twice from suggested colours and finally settled on one I got from RAF friend.
