Oxford already make the TK in 1/76 so they must already have the drawings .This is one used by a Dumbarton company for display and publicity.
Though the military had some TK most were the heavier looking MK and ML.
Back in 1975 the training centre where I worked had a TK as part of the motor pool, as a government vehicle we did not have to display a tax disc so our driver was regularly being pulled over and had to expain this exemption ,one time after being pulled over twice in an hour he was a bit short with the official who then decided to check the diesel , he was not pleased to find that the lorry was petrol powered




Thanks for the photo javlinfaw7 it’s brilliant. Thats pretty much like my Fathers small fleet of TK’s in the Blue Livery with the Gold lettering.   :thankyousign:  :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

The way Oxford produce odd balls there is more of a chance of a n gauge beach buggy than a Bedford TK!

Sounds like a challenge. Would go with the VW minibuses with surf boards on the roof racks, so probably not odd ball enough. ;-)

Still no MK2 Granada, would buy several in a flash.   ;D


A lot of this range are available in 1/145 scale.

https://www.minimodelshop.co.uk/diecast-model-car/ford-granada-mark-ii-ghia-pewter-effect-model-car-autosculpt-miniatures-fo18


The point being made is that it is one of the models OD have already announced and that we are all waiting for.

Best wishes

Might be worth looking at Librairie Retrorepro from time to time, or encourage them to include the Granada Mk 2 in the smaller scale range.

 :confusedsign: My confusion must be because the 1/76 Oxford model is a Consul/Mk1 Granada isn't it? And the N model is the MkIII Cortina.  :) Or did I miss something? :confused2:

Oxford has a Mk1 Ford Grandad and a Mk3 Ford Cortina in the 1:76 range. But only the latter has been shrunk to 1:148.
