Station A03 Wickwar
This is Wyvern Fire Brigade station A03 Wickwar. This retained station was built in 1957. On the run is Bedford TK Carmichael WrL CYC130R and Land Rover Series III 109'' Soft Top L4V RYD960K. As can be seen in this picture at a recent training night the firemen had an RTA drill. As the appliances are outside the firemen must be cleaning the appliance bay.
The fire station is a Superquick card kit, the Bedford TK is an off the shelf Oxford Diecast model. The Land Rover is an Airfix plastic kit with a beacon salvaged from a broken Oxford Diecast RAF Ambulance. Finally the decapitated green car is one of several broken Oxford cars I bought cheap. I then removed the doors and roof with a pair of side cutters.
