298 Budgie Alvis Salamander Fire Crash Tender

 298 Budgie Alvis Salamander Fire Crash Tender

Ref: 33920

Fair, Unboxed

Price: 22.75


Red, with yellow rear compressor, silver-grey plastic ladder and other accessories, and black metal base. Circular 'Fire Service' decals on the sides in white and blue, 'Centre Drive No Hand Signals' on the rear in white. On the roof there is a ladder, bell and swivelling foam nozzle. The windows have clear glazing. At the rear there is a retractable hose. The six wheels are in black plastic.

The Budgie Alvis Salamander is often affected by deterioration of the casting, caused by impurities in the metal alloy and exacerbated by exposure to humidity. This one is no exception; the base/chassis unit is affected with some distortion, and the front corners of the cab have split near the bottom so that the front panel has bent outwards somewhat. The paint has flaked in a couple of places but is generally good, and part of the rear decal is missing. All the plastic parts are present and correct.

Usually further deterioration of the casting can be prevented by keeping the model in a dry temperature with a steady temperature above 20 degrees C.
