Dartford Tunnel Scammell Scarab Recovery Vehicle
Work in progress.
Having seen an article on this in an issue of Classic & Vintage Commercials Magazine I had to build it. So far it has taken three years off-and-on with a few rebuilds. I still have to finish the Harvey Frost crane, but with thanks to John Clifton who sent me some photos of the crane I can now finish it.
The model has 180° steering, a working clutch, a simple three speed and reverse gearbox and differential all in one unit, supported by a pivot at the front and supported by the rear springs as per the original.
