Thornycroft Nubian Major Fire Appliance Crash Tender - Glamorgan Fire Service

This 1/76 OO scale model is of a Thornycroft Nubian Major fire engine / truck as used by the Glamorgan Fire Service in the UK. 

In 1971 Glamorgan County Council ordered two Thornycroft Nubian-Major/Carmichael Jetranger foam tenders for the county’s Cardiff-Rhoose Airport. The first, painted in an all over red livery, was based at the airport and manned by airport fire personnel; the second one was finished in Glamorgan Fire Brigade’s unusual white over red livery.  This one, as depicted in Oxford’s latest model release and registered HNY 589K was based at the county fire brigade’s Bridgend fire station, manned by the county fire brigade personnel. When turned out to an airport emergency it would travel to the airport using the public road network. The machine was later sold to Newcastle Airport where it retained its dual livery prompting the airport authority to repaint the rest of the Newcastle Airport Fire Service fleet in the same livery.

 

Comes in plastic display box with cardboard sleeve.
