K48017 coupled to K48016
The RAF procured many towed fuel bowsers for use on smaller fighter airfields. The Brockhouse MK2 refers to the chassis used, The tank was made by Butterfields with Zwicky pump gear being powered by a single cylinder Lister engine providing a self contained unit that could be easily towed by any airfield vehicle large enough but typically the Fordson Model N or David Brown 4x2. Both of these towing vehicles can be found in this section.
The model features finely detailed chassis with CAD designed wheels, simple to construct resin tank and supplied with all necessary materials such as rubber hose, rod and detailed etched brass set. The pump and engine compartment doors can be set open to reveal the internal equipment and hoses can be deployed for a refueling diorama. Included in the set is a comprehensive decal sheet with type number, roundels, weight class, octane ratings and even operating instructions for the inside of the compartment doors.
The master model was researched and produced by David Jane and Rob Tearle.
