This latest release from Aerobonus features a seated resin RAF driver for the Bedford MWD from Airfix.  

The Bedford MWD Light Truck was the smallest of the wartime Bedford trucks with thousands being built during the Second World War.  They were a simple truck used for a variety of jobs and were used during the Battle of France and continued in service until the early 1950's.

This set gives you the easy ability to create an RAF airfield vehicle and equip the Bedford truck with a uniformed RAF driver.  The Bedford truck is right hand drive and this figure is also holding the steering wheel with his right hand and shifting with his left hand.  The detail on the uniform is well done and the drivers face has very crisp detail.

This is a cool little figure that opens up a whole variety of possibilities for an airfield diorama.  The Bedford MWD was used extensively during WW2, so this figure should open up some interesting options for you.

You can purchase this and other fine resin detail items directly from Aerobonus or from the many retailers that carry their products.  

I would like to thank Aerobonus for providing me with this product sample.
