Bedford RLC 3-Ton Light Recovery
The Bedford RL series of 3-Ton (Later uprated to 4-tonne) trucks are one of the most well known and mass produced British vehicles of the post war era with approximately 73,000 made over a 17 year period. Entering service in 1952 the Bedford RL served in almost every British military unit long after production ended in 1969. This workhorse of the post war British Army was adapted into a wide range of versions to suit many particular operational roles.
This complete 1/35th scale model kit designed by David Jane and Rob Tearle is produced in resin and etched brass with comprehensive full colour decals with many marking options.

An etched brass detail set includes front grille, Bedford logo, mudguards and tie downs etc. Lights are provided cast in clear & coloured resin and the front headlamp guards are fine laser cut material.
