Oxford Diecast Scammell Scarab Flatbed BRS Parcels - 1:148 Scale

Product Code: NRAB005



Longstanding Oxford followers will recall this model being released in 1:76 scale some time ago. Now it is the turn of N scale enthusiasts to add the minutely detailed Scammell Scarab to your line-up. The flatbed is decorated in the signature green and red livery of BRS Parcels which was formed in 1948, where it was part of British Road Services following the nationalisation of Britain's road haulage industry the previous year.

Registered VHW 98, the green tractor unit features the famous BRS logo on the side doors. The characteristic Scammell radiator grille is masked in red and silver and the wheels also have red inserts. The flatbed is green with grey ‘planking' and the side edges of the trailer carry the white BRS Parcel Services lettering as well.

BRS vehicles were an everyday sight in Britain right up to the 1960s, particularly in railway service yards and in addition to having a key place on your Oxford N scale collector shelf, our latest release will sit perfectly as a lineside accessory on any N gauge layout of the period
