You wait for ages then two come along at once....

Bit of a hobby frenzy at the moment....but I have decided everybody needs a shopping buddy, so when you aren't able to get out there is somebody else out there looking for what you want. Luckily I have Steve 😀. Who found these two in a charity shop for the princely sum of £6 for the pair.
After a bit of searching I can just get away with Bedford OB buses according to wiki 70 or so were made before the war, but then Bedford production moved to military vehicles and they only started making these again in 1945 now apparently there is a slightly difference but I am not a bus specialist so I will live with it.
These are in the livery of Jersey I think, they are splendid models so I may or may not get round to giving them a Kentish feel ? Scale wise they are 1:50. Look great with the figures and my other vehicles. Slightly challenging next to my tanks which are mainly 1:56 at the end of the day whilst lovely little vehicles in their own right they are just terrain.
If you were wondering the terrain was from our battle last night which I will blog later after chores have been done 😩
