Oxford 1/76 Thompson Refueller of the Royal Air Force. Perfect for creating dioramas with 1/72 scale diecast aircraft models.

The Thompson Mk Vc Aircraft Fueller is a small three-wheeled, airfield-based refuelling vehicle, powered by a Ford 10hp petrol engine. It has a three forward speed and one reverse speed gearbox and a chain driven rear axle. The three-wheeled, low slung design made it easier to get close to aircraft for refuelling.

The left side tank carried 500 gallons of petrol, whilst the right side tank carried 50 litres of oil. Each tank had its own pump driven by a power take off engaged by levers in the cockpit and each was equipped with an indicator gauge, hose and nozzle.
