Kit 4075 – Foden S24 six wheel articulated generator lorry. Based on the excellent EFE S24 die-cast model. The S24 cab, with its distinctive rectangular headlights, was released in 1964 and by the beginning of the next decade had started to appear on the fairgrounds. This was at a time when rides began to be trailer mounted and this model portrays a typical articulated tractor unit of the era fitted with a generator set across the back of the cab.
The kit includes a heavily modified EFE chassis, generator set, etched brass triple drawbar, white metal rear registration plates and fifth wheel. Kit 4075 – £40.80.
