This is the larger of two fire engine models produced by Modern Products and distributed by Morestone. Red, with silver trim on the grille, bumper and footplates. A brass bell is fitted. The removable two-part extending ladder is in unpainted metal with yellow wheels. The unpainted 'skeleton' base casting consists of sump, propshaft and rear axle. The wheels are unpainted metal with brass hubs.
This example is in excellent condition, with just a few small paint chips where the ladder has rested against the body. It comes in its original illustrated box which is in excellent condition and has a 3/- (three shilling) price label on one end.
