HCB Angus Firestreak Foam Pumper

Angus Fire is a UK based maker of portable fire fighting equipment still trading at the time of writing (September 2022) although their website does not show any vehicle- mounted kit like this, it is all hand-portable or mounted on trolleys and small trailers.. I think the pickup truck in the model is an International, but I'm not certain. It is a model of a mobile foam pumper for light industrial or small airport use.

It takes a battery in the back to power lights and sirens. The first release in June 1980 (C1001) came in a card diorama box with two firefighter figures in silver fireproof suits and some portable firefighting gear. This one was deleted in 1981. In August 1982 it was re-released without the figures and bits (1011), this version was not withdrawn, I've not been able to find a boxed version so the red truck below will have to do for both.

There was a post-Mettoy release in 2000, this one is green, comes with a single firefighter figure, an oxygen bottle on a trolley and a road barrier.
