Bray Train & Model Fair

Should have MM's new launch at the show

 

Update from Murphy Models
 
Announcing the arrival of our 2 vehicle set, comprising a Leyland Fire Engine and Daimler APC (armoured personnel carrier). Available from our usual stockists, deliveries starting later this week. SRP €57.50
 
In their own way, each vehicle is unique. The fire engine is the first on a Leyland chassis and the first Dublin motorised appliance. It was designed in 1909 by Capt. Purcell, chief fire officer for Dublin. Three examples were built in Scotland. One remained in southern England and the other went to the Indian sub-continent. Nothing further is known about them.The Dublin version was scrapped c.1950.
 
The Daimlers were leased from Guinness by the British Army and fitted with 4 smoke boxes in Inchicore Railway Works. They were welded together, gun ports cut, dummy gun ports painted and rear smoke box door left in situ. The forerunners of the modern day APCs! They were returned to Guinness in due course.
 
The Leyland Fire Engine is supplied with decals (inc. spares) which should be placed on the gold outlined panels forward of the "Dublin Fire Department" plaque (behind the front seat, not on the side of the front seat.)

The Scots and Welsh might not like that classification! :) Enjoy, especially if Ireland beat the British rugby team parapet.gif
