Hi Ratch,

thank you very much for your help. Your Bedford and Rover look very good. Hope my model will be ready in some time.

Further to the above, part 35 is a UK "petroleum regulations" firewall to help keep bulk fuel leaks away from the engine and exhaust system. Even if someone wants to model a vehicle sold on into civilian service this part must be retained on any fuel tanker. (I used to be friends with the manager of a filling station and live about 5 miles from a fuel depot.)

Though I fly through the shadow of the valley of death, I shall fear no evil, for I am at 65_000 feet and climbing.
