256 Budgie Foden 'Pluto' Aircraft Refuelling Tanker

 256 Budgie Foden 'Pluto' Aircraft Refuelling Tanker

Ref: 33935

Excellent, Unboxed

Price: 49.75

This articulated aircraft refueller is probably my favourite model in the Budgie Toys range. The distinctive cab has high-level windows to allow the driver to see the aircraft when getting into position to refuel. Both tractor and trailer are finished in red with black bases. The tractor has pale amber tinted window glazing and silver trim to the headlights, bumper and radiator badge. The twin-axle trailer has a winged 'Esso' badge decal in red, white and blue on the tanker sides and rear, and 'Esso Aviation Products' on the sides in dark blue lettering on a white background. The wheels are silver-grey plastic with coarse-treaded black tyres.

This one is in excellent condition with near-perfect decals. There are a couple of paint chips on the cab roof and on the top edge of the tanker, and some paint loss on the tractor's rear mudguards where the trailer has rubbed. Nevertheless, a very nice example.

Length: 149mm.
