White Metal kit 1/76

Dodge ?

Bought on E Bay with no windows and badly made. Soaked in car thinners to separate parts. I think it’s a Dodge (same cab as BW models AFS but not in their catalogue). In Grey AFS colour waiting to be painted. Any information on the real vehicle would be appreciated registration number and livery if possible.

It is a Dodge with Miles bodywork.
Dorset fire brigade had some, but other brigades probably had some as well.
I think that NFS grey is the wrong colour for this
style of body, it should be in post war colours.

This looks like the Dodge produced by Langley (go to links, then manufacturers) Models.Sorry, but it should never have been liveried in grey by the original owner of the model as this would have been a typical post-war (Limousine Type) design using an ex-wartime Dodge cab and chassis appliance.This actual model design is based on the appliances that were converted and used in Cornwall in the late 1940's and into the 50's, and also by many other brigades. After the war, many of the wartime appliances(actually still owned by the Home Office)were returned to Home Office Workshops across the country and converted to bring them more up-to-date then sold to brigades across the UK.Many of these old converted wartime appliances may have even seen service early in the 50's in the green livery of the AFS, and in many cases, actually saw active service well into the 1960's with many county brigades.
