When opening the box, I immediately notice a bad assembly of the bed: the front part, which is attached to the tarpaulin, has a gap in relation to the rest. As these parts are heavily glued, it will be difficult to correct this. See a profile picture showing this defect.Bedford TK profile view

This lorry leaves a mixed impression: the finish is below average for Brekina. The rims are too big at the front and partly cover the tyre sides; some tyres are badly mounted (see the rear axle on the front view picture). The paint is a bit “orange peel”.

The headlights are inserted, as well as the mirrors which are to be fitted (not easily) by the customer.

The cab would have benefited from a pad printed radiator grille, as it is part of the “look” of this lorry (Herpa did it on its GS) and black mudguards, or at least of a different colour, as seen on most of the pictures.

The Bedford TK was produced from 1960 to 1986. It was available with four and six cylinder in-line petrol and diesel engines from Bedford, Leyland and Perkins.
