The Scammell Pioneer Tank Transporter was a pre-WW-2 design for an off-road recovery vehicle, and was based on a modified version of the Scammell Pioneer SV/2S tractor. This model uses the later 30 ton trailer, with extended rear loading ramps, and was capable of recovering all Allied AFV's (Including Churchill...in an emergency).
The vehicle served with recovery and tank transporter units in all British Theatres of operation from the Western Desert to N.W.Europe, and for a time post-war. This 1/35th scale model by Brian Fawcett features complete engine, gearbox and drive train detail, cab interior detail and opening doors.
Realistic 'bulged' tyres are supplied throughout, and the suspension is fully adjustable. A full set of planks, jacks and recovery equipment is also supplied, along with an extensive full colour decal set. (The decals are available separately as DEK100) The completed model is 20" (51cm) long.
1:35th scale is the universal scale of choice for serious and dedicated Military Modelling enthusiasts as it results in the best value combination of cost and detail. Models that are large enough to accurately depict all intricate detail but not so large that they take up too much display space in a typical house. All the major military model kit producers in the world work in 1:35th scale allowing modellers to mix, match, combine and convert all manufacturers products together to create almost every combination of equipment imaginable.
If you do not have a particular "Scale loyalty" then please take time to look carefully at the considerable benefits of working in 1/35th Scale.
