Fowler DNA Class Road Roller, No. 18874 'Lord Jellicoe' registered TK5449.
In real life, it was built in 1930 for F Sharp & Sons of Blandford. Named 'Lord Jellicoe', the roller later passed to the Hine Brothers of Shaftesbury and then in 1968 was bought by Michael Oliver, the founder of the Great Dorset Steam Fair. It stood derelict for many years, complete with tree stumps growing through the chimney. Restoration work commenced in 2005, resulting in a pristine 'Lord Jellicoe' which now appears every year at the Great Dorset Steam Fair.
The Oxford model, modelled primarily in brown and black with intricately printed gold lining, carries the details of the original owner, F Sharp & Sons, Blandford, Dorset on one side of the roof; and details of GDSF founder Michael Oliver, Child Okeford, Dorset on the other side. The panel on the side of the engine, in front of the driver's cab details the Fowler coming from Leeds and F Sharp & Sons designated 'contractors', both picked out in gold on black. Note particularly the roller, painted in an earth colour but realistically 'pitted' to give it a weathered and used look. As with all the vintage steam vehicles, there is a wealth of detail incorporated into the tooling and decoration and 'Lord Jellicoe' is no exception.
