Royal Australian Navy Flight Deck Tractor Model

This type of flight deck tractor was in service on the Royal Australian Navy's aircraft carrier, HMAS Melbourne, since the late 1960s and until her decommissioning in 1982.

This 1:72 scale model kit is from F4Models (cat. # 7010). The kit contains resin and photo etched parts, decals and instruction sheet. On a diorama this vehicle may accompany such RAN aircraft as A-4 Skyhawk and S-2 Tracker, as well as Wessex and Sea King helicopters.
