Customised promotional model trucks specialist, Search Impex, is delighted to announce the release of two new 1/50 scale trucks. The models have been produced exclusively for Search Impex by WSI Models.

Established in 1984, Hough Green Garage is a well-established, family owned and operated Company..With a mixed fleet of more than 200 vehicles, ranging from dedicated service vans to the largest commercial vehicles, the recovery trucks include all the major manufacturer marques (Mercedes, MAN, DAF, Volvo, Scania, Renault & Iveco), as well as two very impressive American Kenworth T800s. The Mercedes Arocs recovery truck (on which the model is based) is stationed at the company’s depot in Stafford. Just like its real life counterpart, the diecast model has been finished in Hough Green’s distinctive Radiant Red and Diamond White livery and is sure to make an attractive addition to any model truck collection.

This 1/50 scale Mercedes Arocs (8x4) heavy recovery truck, customised in Hough Green Garage Ltd’s livery, is a certificated limited edition of 155 pieces, available from Search Impex, priced at £144 each (including UK delivery & VAT).

Additionally, Search Impex has announced a 1/50 scale Scania 111 (4x2) tractor unit and tandem (spread) axle, refrigerated trailer, customised in the well-known livery of Cambridgeshire-based haulier, Ken Thomas. The models have been produced as a non-exclusive, open release, in conjunction with WSI as part of the UK Classics 200 series of models. Each model comes with a WSI certificate stating that the model is limited to a maximum run of 200 pieces worldwide.

The original business was founded back in 1948 by Ken Thomas and today’s company continues to trade under the well-known name, with a major focus on storage and warehousing.

The Ken Thomas fleet of trucks (predominantly Scania) have attractively updated and refreshed graphics, but continue to be liveried in the traditional green, cream and red colour scheme of the company. The Scania 111 unit on which the model has been based is the latest restoration project (completed in October 2019). Models are available from Search Impex and are priced at £156 each (including UK delivery & VAT).
