What is on the ramp? looks like the tilt has been removed and the windscreen removed or dropped like the Willys.
Wasn't the Beaver originally a bus chassis? or maybe the other way round....

No it wouldn't - British shells were measured by projectile weight, the nearest would be a QF 25 pounder, so scaling that gives an ~18 pounder - or you could go with a 66mm LAW Wink

Coming up the ramp isn't it just a partially assembled 80" with lights behind the front grill, no windscreen or bonnet, no rear tub, but a fairly identifiable Series 1 pressed side fuel tank?

I thought this was the transporter owned by Ken Wheelwright before his sad passing?

This was indeed owned by Ken Wheelwright and his nephew Alan, before being sold to the German dealer, Landy Point.
Sadly, I believe it has deteriorated over the years, although remains a remarkable vehicle.

The actual vehicle (Kens was a recreation based upon the original) has recently changed hands & is being restored to original spec.
