This Aveling and Porter 1:76 scale Oxford roller looks a real workhorse. Its wonderfully muted, almost dirty green body shows it is getting down to the job in hand of rolling out the road and spreading the red hot tar macadam. Just love the smell!
The technical detailing is superb: the roller holder/frame is painted bright red, the roof top slate grey with the underside clay brown and the steering wheel signal red, while the roller and outer wheels are given a light buff finish. The engine registered MK 128 belongs to Robert Bate of Fordhouses, Wolverhampton according to the lettering on the side of the roof. The name of the engine Crusader is printed in red and gold on the side of the boiler and the whole model is lined out in a finely detailed gold, black, white and yellow finish.
It really looks the part along with the newly tooled Coleman Flapper Tar Spreader towed behind - Product Code 76APR001.
