1/43rd scale 1921 Dennis 'N' Type

picture #1606 on this site, shows the real thing. Produced by Yatming Models and sold for just over ten pounds (20 US$) it has amazing detail. Even the screws which hold the radiator header tank to the radiator core are present! Everything from the pump gauges to the CTC extinguisher are reproduced so accurately.

Having spent many days polishing the brass on the real thing the chromed brass on the model does look tempting!

Glade to see you finally got your model Barry.I hope you enjoy many
hours playing with it, like the many hours you spend with the real one,
except this one should'nt take as long to keep polished.

Barry, the Yatming model of your 1936 Dennis Light 4 should
be in the shops in August/Sept?.It looks brilliant mate.

Barry:

Finally, something displayed on this Site that I [and a bunch of other Devoted Readers] can afford to bring home - and, maybe not have the wife want to kill us, when she finds out what we spent the money on....

Thanks for putting it on - and filling in the history.

It looks pretty good.

Regards, from Canada,

To the model collector this was well worth the wait, the detail and the cost of this 1st in the series of three British fire models being put out by YatMing is really out standing.I've just got the 2nd to be released, its of a 1934 Leyland- FK-1 and again a must for the any collector, the detail is perfect.

I had an Airfix kit that looked just like this as a kid around sixty years ago. It was supposedly a Coventry City Fire Brigade Dennis N type, with solid tyres but no windscreen, but it was not very rugged and fell apart fairly quickly...
