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 extensive 1/35th scale resin model by David Jane and Derek Hansen comprises both ATV and trailer pump, and comes complete 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.


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.
