I've spotted those too. IMHO the tank loads are a lot more realistic looking than BachFar's effort. Good value too, as you said RG. I hope the seller gets sufficient support to encourage more loads. :thumbsup:

The Recycloads model (L) is green resin, with a quick coat of gunk from me.

The Recycloads tank is a British Mark V, apparently in service until the end of the 1920s (the French bought some and kept theirs well into the 1930s). So, if like me you're modelling 1930 or thereabouts, a couple of these would be well worth the purchase.

i dont know who does the metal model, but if you find it. you should be able to use the picture as a painting guide!! (its not from Pendraken, Wargames South or Pithead - I'll keep looking!).

the only link so far is this!! ( and the wagon is 25 or so on its own, so not so expensive!)

Gramodels, perhaps? Graeme does a pretty good range of WWI vehicles.

At a show a couple of years ago I bought one of almost all his N Gauge wagons. I've got three done here, although I've just realised I don't have a shot of them lettered and weathered (must rectify that):


I also had a long chat with him about him shrinking down his OO LSWR 44ft carriage design to N. I got the impression that it was going to be a long process, and there's sadly no sign of it appearing yet. He probably needs a bit more encouragement - and for the accurate SR cattle wagons too.

With apologies to the OP for getting diverted...

The Austin K2 ambulance I think is from Arrowhead https://arrowheadminiatures.co.uk/
The nearest to  an ambulance I know of is GRA's 3 ton subsidy truck or Pendrakes 4 ton Thornycroft https://pendraken.co.uk

I made the mistake of looking under WW1!!

https://arrowheadminiatures.co.uk/products/b414-austin-k2-ambulance

This is it I think. So wrong period, and wrong load!!
 


I did notice that Pendraken do an Old Bill bus - probably a bit crude but I Have been looking for one for a while ( BP36 - no picture)

It's not a Gramodels model ( and Graham says they never sent soft skins by Rail! )

I've been chatting to the chap behind the tank loads, 'superjono', or Jon. He put in quite a bit of work into the original tank load and was rather surprised by the sudden rush of orders. He has recently started casting some with a medium green tarpaulin cover, which fits in nicely between the other two greens. He's also produced some industrial loads under bright orange tarpaulins which should look great on modern layouts, and I've ordered some rather nice looking scrap iron loads for Peco 5-plank wagons.

Apparently there's a Farcebroke page for those who are into that sort of thing...
