1:50 scale Volvo FH5 Globetrotter XL 540 Euro 6 (6x4) heavy recovery truck, customised in Lantern Recovery’s livery.  

Please note :  The model is based on a Falkom recovery truck (not Worldwide Recovery Systems, as per the actual truck).  Lantern Recovery is fully aware of this and accepts there are some differences in specification between the model and their actual truck.

The models have been produced exclusively for Search Impex by WSI Models as a certificated Limited Edition (255 pieces). 

With its HQ in Potters Bar, Hertfordshire, Lantern Recovery was founded in 1966 by the Coleman family.  The business has been active in the vehicle recovery & roadside assistance industry for over 55 years and over that time has grown to become one of the largest independent businesses in its sector. With more than 150 vehicles on its fast-growing fleet, Lantern Recovery proudly remains a family run concern and is now in the 3rd generation.

The business has built up a wealth of experience & knowledge over the years and is capable of handling an extremely diverse range of heavy recovery needs, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week anywhere in the UK and throughout Europe.  The call centre operators, on taking a call, make an initial assessment of the incident.  They then deploy the correct equipment as quickly as possible to ensure any type of recovery can be completed safely and efficiently using one or more of the trucks from its significant fleet of heavies – which includes some of the best and latest equipment for on or off road recoveries.

Well known for heavy recovery services, the Company features in the Channel 5  documentary "Car Pound Cops - Give Me My Car Back" as well as “Trucking Hell” on Paramount which provides a good insight into the nature of the work and the difficulties faced by specialist recovery operators.  Keep an eye on these TV series and you may well see, in action, the Volvo (6x4) heavy recovery truck on which the 1:50 scale model has been based.  The Volvo FH5 is the most recent heavy recovery truck to join the Lantern fleet and is certainly an impressive piece of kit!

Models, available from Search Impex, are priced at £154 each (including UK delivery & VAT).
