Corgi Models Model-T Ford Ambulance and A.E.C. Omnibus

A month or two ago I was lucky enough to pick up this Corgi Transport Through The Ages collectors set from a wargamer in Australia. It is a Limited Edition Military Transport Set consisting of an A.E.C. Omnibus and a Model-T Ford Ambulance. They are nominally about 1/56th scale so in theory ideal for 28mm figures and will be ideal for use with my World War I forces in the Middle East & Africa (ANZACs & Colonial British) and the Ambulance should be useful for the Eastern Front too (for my Russians). The bus is actually from Flanders 1914 and the BEF but I’m sure I can fudge it into some scenarios in other theatres somewhere! Perhaps the Russians had omnibuses?

For the record this set is No. 347 of only 6000 released globally – the big question is whether to keep it in collector’s state as pictured, or do some washes & dry-brushing to weather the vehicles and highlight detail to make them suitably ‘wargaming’ quality, and add drivers too…?
