Merryweather Limousine fire engine in Meccano - rear
1/12 scale model of a 1934 Merryweather Limousine fire engine built in Meccano by George Illingworth. The original was supplied to Lancaster and is believed to be the prototype for the Dinky Streamlined Fire Engine. The Hatfield pump is identical to the Dinky but note the different side window arrangement.
