150 Years of London Fire Appliances. Six iconic fire appliances from across the years make up this 6-piece set celebrating 150 years of their use by the London Fire Brigade. Each model is already part of the Oxford range and appears in this set with subtle differences. 31A. Bedford Heavy Unit – London Fire Brigade. The long wheelbase Bedford Heavy Unit dates back to the late 1930s and served as a fire appliance during WWII particularly. Our model, decorated in bright red, was used by the London Fire Brigade from the 1940s onwards. Registered FLE 296, the Brigade’s colourful crest is printed on each side of the cabin behind the windows and the LCC London Fire Brigade lettering is printed in gold on the red generator in the rear section of the vehicle. With a red interior and black seating, additional detail includes the rolled up ‘canvas back’ positioned at the rear of the cabin. Externally, there is a wealth of black and silver masking, which also includes the silver masked hose ends and white tips to the roof ladders. 31B Leyland TLM – London Fire Brigade This classic fire appliance was a popular choice by fire brigades in the years leading up to WWII and some were still in use until the mid 1960s. Our model comprises the Leyland TLM/Metz, complete with its 104 ft silvered turntable ladder, registered DGJ 309, Fleet No. 72. Decorated in red with the ladder wheel mounting component also in the main body colour, the London Fire Brigade lettering is printed in gold on the outer edge of the silver walkway. Fine gold coachlines have also been applied to the sides and the wheel mounting. The chassis, mudguards, radiator grille, headlight casings and model interior are black with all remaining masking detail finished in silver. 31C AEC Regent III/Merryweather Fire Engine – London Fire Brigade Between 1950 and 1956, 139 Merryweathers were built on AEC Regent chassis, 111 of which were dual purpose fire engines equipped to carry wheeled escapes for fight
