Royal Navy Bedford Oyd with 20mm AA

After a break of two years I have had some time to finish this rare object. It's about a Bedford Oyd with a 20mm Oerlikon AA gun of Royal Navy Homeland Defense.
It's a resin kit from Accurate Armour and although some parts are crooked it is a good kit and it's not a every day model. Unfortunately the left door was lost during the movement into our house. Despite intensive search ... the door remained disappeared. Well, to compensate this I have cut of a sheet of brass wire mesh and prepared a replacement-door. Maybe the original one might be lost during some action.
The front axle I have changed, the tailgate was mounted in open position to be able to see the crew operating the 20mm gun. The crew I have sculptured myself using some wire and Aves putty. The heads came from Hornet range. Less words, more pics; hope you like it.

A 'Making of' to this rare object you can check out in the belonging WebLog.
More Information on sculpting these figures you will find here.
