Re-purposed Airfix trucks

Supply element for my desert Brits.

Both Airfix plastic kits acquired as part of a job lot of bits, broken models and stuff a few yrs back.

Bedford QL tanker 
Was from the RAF refueling set - now can be a standard fuel tanker or water truck
I removed the long pipe arms and repainted from its pretty RAF blue livery

Austin K3 (I think?) 
Based on an article I read as a boy in a modelling book, was the K6 fire truck from the RAF emergency set painted in a brilliant red :)

Cut down the chassis, added a rough plastic card body and a canopy pinched off a Opel blitz. and then repainted to suit.

Both together
