This is an un-assembled 1/152nd scale model of a Bedford MJ Cargo that measures 43mm long, 17mm wide, and 24mm high. It weighs 40g and consists of 10 parts that are made of lead-free pewter alloy.
In Service - early 1970s through to the early 2000s
The diesel engined Bedford MJ came into service in 1981, followed a year later by the turbo-diesel engined Bedford MJP, although there are very few external differences between them. They differ from the earlier MK in the positioning of the word “Bedford” on the bonnet (not really visible in ‘N’ Gauge) and by the purpose built roof rack over the cab fitted to the MJs and MJPs.
These cargo trucks have been used continuously by the British Army, and a number of other countries, right through from the 1980s up to the 2000s. All Bedford MJs have now been replaced by the newer MAN 4x4s.
