Details: Having featured models of service vehicles built by Kim Rennie, Clive Greedus and Les Wrangle, I can now add an example of the work of Brian Ormerod. He has created quite a fleet of 'traditional' era vehicles using a mixture of kits, die-cast models and scratch-building. He has also managed to include working features on several, such as the tail-gate on AEC Regal lorry 420W shown here. Two things however really lift these models to an exceptional level in my opinion. Firstly is their neatness. Looking at them it is hard to believe they are to OO scale. The glazing for example, often the downfall of models, is flawless. Secondly is the presentation. His models are superbly photographed, often with posed workers. I can recommend anyone to take a look at his Flickr collection here, in particular the Bedford OSS mobile canteen and AEC Mercury tower wagon towards the bottom.
