1950's airfield fire service
The fire/crash/rescue appliances for a 1950's airfield. All in 1/76, the models are;
1 Modified Oxford Diecast Land Rover.
2 Bedford QL - Pyrene FoT (converted Airfix)
3 Austin K6 FoT (modified Airfix - see picture #4506
4 Austin K6 CO2 tender (modified Airfix)
5 Austin K6 FoT (standard Airfix)
6 Bedford OW ET. This is one of the latest releases by Oxford and is a little disappointing. The rear bodywork is plastic and has obviously been designed to be multi use with the windows and panel lines simply printed on - not exactly convincing unfortunately. The original ladder gantries were also a little clumsy and have been removed from my model.
