Renowned cast model and toymaker Britains has added two NC Engineering slurry tanker options to its range of precision made farm machinery lines.

The company’s wide array of diecast models and toys has a well-earned reputation for quality and authenticity. They are equally popular with children and model collectors. The Britains’ range features scale tractors, farm implements and machinery lines from all leading manufacturers.

“We are delighted that the NC name is now proudly featuring in toy shops, and in the toy departments of farm merchants and machinery dealers throughout Ireland and the UK,” NC director Wilfie Carson told AgriLand.

“The toy and model manufacturer approached us a number of months ago and asked if they could feature two of our tanker designs. We immediately said ‘yes’ and provided them with the necessary drawings and photographs. It is a tremendous honour for all of us at NC Engineering that a company with the prestige of Britains came to us in this way.”

Demand for the new model is expected to be high in the run up to Christmas. The two options featured are roadside and fieldside specifications of the renowned 2,500 gallon NC top fill tanker. Both are 1:32 scale models with original decal detail, pipe detail, stabiliser foot, opening top fill hatch, rolling wheels and tyres with tread detail. The ferry tanker specification includes an adjustable transfer boom while the field model features extra wide tyres with tread detail.

“We are delighted with the tremendous quality of both models,” stressed NC director Norman Nicholl.

“Britains could not have done a better job. We have just celebrated 37 years in business and the availability of the new Britains’ models is a novel and fitting way of marking this milestone.

“We are fully aware of just how popular the Britain’s range is with children and model collectors. The feedback we have received regarding the availability of the new tanker models has been extremely positive. It looks very like that they will be much sought out over the Christmas season.”
