TQ169 Scammell EKA Recovery
Some details of the latest model from Kit Form Services.
Briefly, the sister model to their TQ-168 35 tonne tractor unit kit, use's the same cab, chassis, Rolls Royce Eagle Diesel engine & Scammell running gear with alterations as applicable to the recovery vehicle version. The recovery body is an all new kit in its own right. The Swedish EKA equipment fitted to the Crusader was later trialled on the Scammell 6x4 Roadtrain T45 cabbed vehicle & eventually entered service (now with rotating crane) on the Foden EKA. The kit has a full set of open lockers with etched brass doors & detailed stowage including a range of under lift cross head fittings, an operational main crane & underlift, making suspend tows perfectly possible.
Essential externally stowed recovery equipment is included as well as a basic set of CES kit for 1 main locker. A further add-on CES kit set is available separately (see TQ180 in the TQ Section on the KFS website for details) to enhance the remaining lockers should the builder wish for them all to be posed open.
The parts count for the combined Crusader tractor unit with EKA recovery body & gear comes in at around 168 in resin, 120 in white metal, 250 in etch brass & 11 clear cast/pre-coloured.
£320.00 UK inc vat (£266.66 for export outside the EU)
