Hi Pavel, thanks for the comments. I am very lucky there are a few fire engine rallies close to where i live in the UK. There has been a growing interest in fire appliances over the last 20 years or so.

Hi guys, am currently building a 1/76 scale model of thus type of appliance and wonder if anyone has any more photos of the ladder gantry system?

hi there, the MOD had this type of machine, the one I remember belonged to MOD Bishopton (near Greenock).

Fordson Thames fire engines were pretty rare in the UK, although a few were also exported to former British colonies. Ford only started to make a dent in the fire engine business after the D series was introduced in 1966.
