Last year two Blue Water missiles were issued as resin loads by Military Aircraft Monthly's company (SAM?) for the Airfix TSR 2.

I have just seen an ad in a model magazine for a Bedford TK army truck with generator set from Oxford Diecast models, albeit in a slightly different 1:76 scale. Anyone wanting a quick and dirty Blue Water model should be able to get hold of both cheaply.

Although photos and drawings of Blue Water show the earlier round cabbed Bedford, I am sure that the in-service version would have had a later model vehicle.

Thank you for that. Last year I bought an old Airfix 1/32nd Bedford with the thought of making it into a Blue Water launcher.

I too managed to obtain the old 1/32 Airfix Bedford for a Blue Water project but the basic truck is too much like hard work to use and I then seriously bent it trying to vac-form a cab from it.

However for a deluxe attempt Accurate Armour have quoted me £60 for their 1/35th resin kit, minus the truck body. So it's possible but at a price.
