Some news for British softskin fans, IBG has sent in an update, and the QLR is not that far out.
IBG Models has informed Armorama that the Bedford QLR is almost ready to rollout. The next variant of this British vehicle should be on store shelves by November. The images sent in are from the test build, and this looks to be another must have kit.

35017 Beford QLR Wireless

Armorama would like to thank IBG Models for this exciting update.

LINK Finally an 'office' for my MiniArt English officers! (and another hole in my budget ) Looks brilliant. And a source for additional upgrade sets, I guess. Having searched on the internet, I spotted quite some pictures with the radio sets displayed. To me, it looks that IBG has reduced this. Nevertheless: I am really happy to see another Allied truck. Any one an idea about the antenna's etc, to make it look like an office during its opening hours? Thanks for the update! (and waiting for the artillery tractor!!! ) P.

No, what I meant was: I want the version for for towing a gun, since the chances of a Matador seem slim in my lifetime. I guess call it the Vanilla Version.

Hi Bill, Look to AFV Club for the Matador, I've seen some test short of the kit and it's in their listing. IBG have the QLB listed which will be great for the Bofors. Al

a QL Radio?[/quote] I know of a 4 1/2" & a 5 1/2" visually very similar, but not 5" howitzer, unless you mean the WW1 one? got any pics? SFAIK, the (upcoming AFV Club) Matador was used to tow the 5.5" Medium Howitzers. The Bedford QLB (for Bofors) had a special rear body & cab for crew & ammo storage. (want them all, btw, )

A Matador, a complete series of QL's. Holy Moly, I need two extra bonusses for Christmas! Looking forward to see these trucks driving into my local hobby shop. (Does anybody know a good reason to buy these trucks which will be believed by my best one????)
