I'm writing concerning a large scale working model fire engine that
was featured on BBC-TV's Blue Peter in the 1970s (possibly early
1980s)?

The vehicle was about three feet long and featured a working pump,
flashing lights and siren. The detail was incredible – all the doors
opened and the lockers were fitted out with miniature equipment –
including working fire extinguishers.

Question: do you know who owned this vehicle and/or if it still
exists?

I've tried the BBC, who are either unwilling or unable to help. Hope
you can help, and accordingly I look forward to your reply.

Kind Regards

Phillip Rhodes

I remember it. It had Action Men for crew. I'm looking for it myself.
