This diarama shows a model of Motor No38 from the Dubbo Fire Brigade (Station 280) of the N.S.W.Fire Brigades in New South Wales,Australia.
The Bedford Tanker conversion was produced using an Airfix 1.76 scale Bedford MK.4 Tonne Truck and was a Series developed from the Bedford civilian TK 4X2 chassis to meet MOD specifications for the military used throughout the world.These type of ex-Military vehicles were widely used by fire brigades in all states in Australia throughout the 1980's and 1990's and were for many the main appliance in many cases for many volunteer bush brigades across the country.
The 2 bay fire station was made from using two'Dapol'model railway kit houses joined together with the brickwork and stonework added to make this look like a typical Australian small town fire station.
