Hi guys,

Forty year enthusiast.

sorry, will do my introductions later.

Anybody, any ideas, where I start looking for a FV3005 (or similar) Sankey/Crane Semi-Trailer ( Dinky Toys example) to hook onto the fifth wheel of a Thornycroft Antar mark 2

 

Any leads would be appreciated.

 

Will tell you the story later!

 

regards ,

 

Mike.

Hydraulic power pack, (yellow) sits bolted across rear ramps. (which were also decked over with wooden planking.)

 

On the front of the trailer is a Side valve petrol air compressor. Capable of producing air at 400 PSI, the tubular chassis forms the Air Reciever.

 

I can only guess with that many tyres the Air compressor serviced the trailer. It was fitted (badly) to the trailer with steel wire and turnbuckles, and didn't look as if it had been off for many a year....Why that pressure was needed I can't say, I suppose it is a case of what ever you can cadge on the Airfield is what you end up using.

Sorry, I haven't a clue. Good luck in your search. I was told that Van Dam's used to have some. I think you might stand a better chance looking on the continent...

Thanks Mike,

 

Had e-mailed v.d's, but had no reply yet. Just checking to see if someone may have had one sitting in a yard somewhere.

Thanks again,

Mike.

Aha, an early Gestetner duplicating machine and its trailer...... that would account for why the one at my junior school never moved from under the stairs in the four years I was there....I didn't realise they were that heavy?
