Tanx Jim and Theo,

Jim, to answer your question on wikipedia I found the meaning of Pantechnicon.
It reads: A pantechnicon van, usually shortened to pantec, was originally a furniture removal van drawn by horses and used by the British company "The Pantechnicon" for delivering and collecting furniture which its customers wished to store. The name is a word largely of British English usage.
So I used the short name "Pantec" in my description.

I did not make pictures of the painting stages so I skip that phase .
The waterslide transfers on the box are home designed but they were printed by Decalwinkel.nl
On the following pictures the finished Bedford removal truck is shown.










t was a lot of work but fun to do and I do like the result very much.
To quote "Hannibal" Smith of the A-team: “I love it when a plan comes together”

Best Regards – Wolter.

Tanx Jim and Theo for your kind words.

And yes Theo I choose the name "Bucketwood" because I live in the quarter called "Emmerhout" here in the village of Emmen.
Our son brought it up once by calling my wife "Mrs. Bucketwood" for fun.

By the way the owner of the "Decalwinkel" told that he stopped as a shop but continued printing decals as a hobby.

Best Regards - Wolter.

Tanx Jan,

I have plans for another one but first I have to finish a small modification on a Leyland truck from an eight wheeler to a six wheeler.

Best Regards - Wolter.
