The Takara 1/144 Rescue Mecha Collection Airport Fire Engine!

     One of the unique additions to the 1/144 Scale Rescue Mecha Collection sets was the addition of the Airport Fire Engine.  It's not an International Rescue vehicle, rather a standard fire engine in use by London Airport in 2065 for crash emergencies.  Like the elevator cars, this fire vehicle made its debut in the premiere episode, Trapped in the Sky.  It's rare to see guest vehicles from Thunderbirds getting made into models or toys, so it's a welcome addition to my collection.  Enjoy!

  1. I do love this vehicle and what a superb toy it makes Will. I've often wondered if this is the closest we'll get to the fabled Crash Tender of the SpaceX II series of Pippin toys.
