Derbyshire based promotional model trucks specialist, Search Impex, is pleased to announce the forthcoming release of a 1:50 scale DAF XF MY2017 480 Space cab (6x2) tractor unit with 3 axle, extender flatbed trailer, customised in the livery of Kent based operator R. Swain & Sons.
The models will be produced exclusively for Search Impex by WSI Models as a certificated Limited Edition.
With its HQ in Strood, Kent, the Swain Group is now a fifth generation family business and is one of the largest family owned logistics businesses in the UK. In existence for over 100 years, the Company has grown (both organically and through acquisition) to become a national distribution business with vast experience and exceptional capability in general haulage, crane operations, special projects and dedicated operations.
The Group operates from 8 sites within the UK – each one of which is capable of offering the Group’s entire portfolio of services. In order to serve the needs of its 1,800 customers, Swain Group has an impressive fleet of more than 500 trucks (comprising tractor units, specialist vehicles, including crane trucks and rigid trucks) and almost 700 trailers (predominantly curtains and flatbeds, but also heavy haulage trailers, container trailers and bulk tippers).
Swain Group member R. Swain & Sons undertakes much of the Group’s general haulage work, utilising an impressive fleet of some 160 curtain trailers and around 450 flatbed trailers (this making R. Swain & Sons the largest flatbed trailer operator in the UK). The trucks and trailers are all turned out in the Company’s distinctive green, maroon and yellow livery and will, for sure, already be a familiar sight to many a UK truck spotter and model collector.
Any collectors wishing to reserve a model should register their interest with Search Impex as soon as possible and provide their contact details. The models are expected to be priced around £157 each (including UK delivery & VAT). We do NOT require any deposit payment.
