Good choices Allen. Is the Bedford one of the clear cab jobs? I've been tempted to buy one of those Chevs and convert it to the Ford Blitz pattern.

Nice weathering,very realistic. What colour pastel did you use and when you say, "A coat of fix to hold the pastel in place" What is "fix" is it a clear coat?

clutch here is photos of pastels and fixative that I used on the Blitz,have 2 sets of pastels one is earth tones the other is grey tones,forgot there name u can get them from art supply shops,the fixative also comes from art supply shops,it used for fixing pencil,pastel,chalk, charcoal,on paper,u have to be carefull when useing pastel that u don't mix what is called mud if u do just wash of and go again,with fixative frist put on a dust coat untill u seal pastel, then u can put heavy coat on,if u loss the pastel with fixative ,just put more on,it workable matt.Don't buy gloss. hope that helps u,its the frist time that I have used it so far it worked OK.in the pastel sets there is 12 colours.
