Based in Spean Bridge, Inverness-shire, Ferguson Transport is one of Scotland’s fastest growing transport companies. Models are priced at £135 each (including UK delivery & VAT). The model will also be limited to just 102 pieces.
Finally, Search Impex has recently completed a large truck order for leading UK Builders’ Merchant Travis Perkins. Based on a 1/25 scale Volvo FH (6x2) dropside rigid truck with crane, the trucks have been produced, in pink, by Finnish manufacturers Emek.

The model benefits from a multitude of ‘play’ features including a working crane, opening dropsides and pull down hydraulic ram stabilisers at the rear of the truck and it comes complete with four pallets and a pallet fork attachment for the crane. 

The pink theme was adopted by Travis Perkins to celebrate its charity partnership in 2010 with Breast Cancer Campaign and Children’s Hospices UK and the pink coloured model trucks are being used to help raise money for these two nominated registered charities.
