Derbyshire based promotional model trucks specialist, Search Impex, is delighted to announce the forthcoming release of a 1:50 scale DAF XF 530 Space cab MY2017 (6x2) heavy recovery truck, customised in the livery of Welsh operator, Ken Williams Recovery.
Please note : The model will be based on a Falkom recovery truck (not Boniface, as per the actual truck). Ken Williams Recovery is fully aware of this and accepts there will differences in specification between the model and their actual truck.
With its Head Office in Fforestfach on the outskirts of Swansea and a second depot in Carmarthen, Ken Williams Recovery has been “on the tow” for around 40 years and provides high quality vehicle breakdown and recovery services across South and West Wales. Its fleet of recovery vehicles, coupled with great experience and knowledge, means this operator is capable of providing recovery services for a wide range of vehicles, from cars and light commercial vehicles, through to HGV’s, buses and coaches.
A diverse range of more than 50 recovery vehicles ensures Ken Williams is able to handle more than 15,000 recoveries each year, some of which can prove to be exceptionally challenging. They specialise in heavy recovery (particularly buses and coaches - for which their staff have a professional understanding of coach construction and running gear) and their fleet of heavy recovery units are on call 24 hours a day to assist with any eventuality. Ken Williams Recovery have also been associated throughout its history for heavy winching recovery. Well known for this specialisation, they also operate a significant fleet of heavy off road winching units.
Proud of their instantly recognisable two tone green & red livery, Ken Williams recovery vehicles will already be a familiar sight to many people on the roads of South & West Wales - and frequently further afield. The DAF XF (on which the model is to be based) is one of the latest additions to the fleet and comes embellished with Prince of Wales Feathers and Welsh flag logos, as well as a personalised registration plate – KW21 TOM (Tom being the driver!). And just like its real life counterpart, the die-cast model will be finished in Ken Williams’ distinctive livery, complete with the requisite trimmings, and so is sure to make an attractive addition to any model truck collection.
