Jowett Bradford Van

Bradford Van (Kit)

Kit by J & M Classics

1:43 scale white metal

Stock Code: Brad1-kit

Price: £39.95 for basic kit. (See extras available).

This kit is of the identical parts used in the Bradford Van model detailed in the model page.

The standard kit provides all parts as used in the model, with the plated parts pre-plated, and all painted parts as bare metal.

There are two versions of the radiator available, The first is supplied as bare metal so that it can be painted (normally the same colour as the body, as fitted on most Bradford Vans).  The alternative is a plated radiator.

As an option we can paint the body and wings so that the body is of the chosen colour, with a standard black roof, and with the wings in black.  This leaves you to paint the chassis, headlights, the interior, and if required the radiator.  Standard body colours available with this option are maroon, grey or British racing green.  This option costs an additional £20.

Note that the kit consists of about 45 parts, some of which are very small.  We supply a detailed parts list, but do not provide detailed assembly instructions.  Instead we provide hints for building the model based on our experience.  For a model with this number of parts it is expected that the model maker will be relatively experienced.  A copy of the documentation provided with the kit can be seen here.

There is some background information on the Bradford van, with photographs of typical vehicles which can be seen by following this link.
