Oxford Diecast Thornycroft Nubian Isle Of Man Airports Board Fire76TN004
Deployed by the Isle of Man Airports Board Fire Service, our Thornycroft Nubian Major represents the powerful vehicle which Thornycroft launched in the mid 1960s to cope with the increasing need from larger airfields and runways of the time. The Nubian Major was a three-axle vehicle with six-wheel drive and was designed for a gross weight of 20 tons. The high performance crash tender was capable of carrying increased loads of foam and water supplies. Moreover, with a V8 diesel engine, the 18 ton vehicle could exceed a speed of 60 mph.
Here we see it registered MN4359 decorated in red, silver and grey with a black and grey interior.
The detailed components include water cannon, roof control panel, roof mounted air horns, blue tinted and orange beacons, roof ladders, hoses and rear spotlights. A final detail is the T logo on the front of the radiator, recalling its Thornycroft pedigree.
