Description Extended Information
 
Oxford MWD001 British Army Bedford MWD Truck - Mickey Mouse Camouflage (1:76 Scale) "After [El] Alamein, we never had a defeat."
- British Prime Minister Winston Churchill

The first Bedford light vehicles produced in England by General Motors were built in 1931. When the Second World War began, production was launched again by updating the 1934 Morris-Commercial CS 8 and the Bedford GS (General Service) models to equip the British Army: The new truck consists of a 4x2 chassis cab and roadster wooden box with a powerful engine and a relatively low overall silhouette with the hood is heavily tilted in order to increase the visibility of the driver.

Directly employed during the battle of France where it is engaged for the first time, it became the workhorse of the British army, equipping also the Royal Air Force. Its strengths are its engine and its excellent handling.

From 1943, the models are equipped with half doors and a folding windshield Parre. The Bedford MWD are used during the Battle of Normandy by British forces, in addition to other light vehicles, filling all kinds of logistics missions.

Pictured here is a 1:76 scale replica of a British Army Bedford MWD Truck in Mickey Mouse Camouflage. Item en route to us!

Historical Account: "M-I-C-K-E-Y" - This British Army Bedford MWD Truck has been painted in the 1944 British Army vehicle camouflage pattern popularly known as "Mickey Mouse" pattern, because of the distinctive black mouse ears painted on or sprayed over the khaki drab base color.

The pattern was used on many vehicles participating in the Normandy invasion and the subsequent campaigns in France, Belgium and the Netherlands.

GOOD QUALITY FOR THE PRICE! October 18, 2013
Reviewer: D J MILLER from New York, New York  
I was searching around for some British WWII truck models and found this nice British Bedford MDW truck! It is a nicely detailed 1/76th model...so nice, I bought 2! It will complement my collection of other 1/76 WWII British military vehicles. If you need a Bedford MWD...this is the one!
