Newcastle and Gate Fire Brigade

AEC Regent III Fire Engine

1/76th scale

Beautifully detailed 1/76th scale diecast model produced by Oxford Diecast. Model comes mounted in perspex display case.

139 Merryweathers were built on AEC Regent chassis between 1950 and 1956. Of the total, 111 were dual-purpose fire engines, equipped to carry wheeled escape for use in fighting large fires or supplied with extension ladders to combat small fires. The fire brigades usually purchased the vehicles in pairs comprising both options. This model comes with spare extension ladders enabling you to display both alternatives. The AEC Regent fire engine chassis were assembled at the Maudsley Motors Coventry Works and the coachwork was built at the Park Royal Coachworks in London. It was the first post war diesel fire engine and had a carrying capacity of 100 gallons of water, with the ability to pump 1000 gallons a minute from its midship pump. It could be operated with either a wheel escape ladder (pump escape) or 35 ft extension ladder (major pump).
