Parts to convert the Thornycroft and Bedford for fairground use

The Thornycroft Amazon was produced for the military during the second war. Some of these found their way onto the fairgrounds but three completely new examples were bought after the war by Whiteleggs in the West Country.

To convert the lorry for Showland use a fully enclosed generator is added to turn it into a drawbar tractor.

The Airfix kit for the Thornycroft also includes a Bedford OX articulated tractor. Small articulated units were uncommon on the fairs in the post war period so I have converted this one into a box van and materials to do this are provided.

The kit does not include the Airfix plastic kit but does include all other parts and instructions for the conversions.
