Austin K2 ATV & Trailer Pump
On Sale - Last few remaining | �Permalink to K148
The Austin K2 Auxilliary Towing Vehicle (ATV) was built for the UK National Fire Service (NFS) in WW-2. It was the most famous (and numerous) fire appliance in service during the ‘Blitz’. The Coventry Climax ‘FSM’ Type trailer pump was a petrol driven fire pump for boosting low water pressure or for suction delivery from ponds or rivers, and pumping out flooded basements. The pump can be removed from the trailer by hand and is narrow enough to fit through a standard house doorway. Both equipments served on for many years post war.
This very extensive and super value 1/35th scale resin set of three models by David Jane and Derek Hansen comprises a complete Austin ATV, complete trailer with all stowage and a complete FSM Pump, and comes with two sets of extending ladders, vehicle hose ramps, flexible rubber suction and delivery hoses, stretchers, couplings, hydrant and ‘T’ Bar. We have also included a sunken water main for a diorama base. An extensive etched brass detail set is also included as is a set of full colour decals.
