Alternative Foden Tanker
Here's one that Dinky could have done - a very bright and colourful National Benzole liveried tanker. Whilst looking for a reproduction box for one of my other restorations, I came across this "phantom" box, liked the look of it and bought it. I then found a battered Foden cab/chassis on Ebay, which I repaired and matched up to a Kingfisher reproduction tank. The transfers were made for me by a friend of a friend, based on a photo I supplied, and were applied over the freshly painted model.
Built and photographed in December 2013.
