Does anyone know of any website or whatever, that may have a photo of this particular vehicle? I am working on the new IBG kit but so far haven't found a thing. Any help would be appreciated.

Cheers,
Rick

Hi Rick. The following 3 photos of a SWB CMP Petrol Tanker are from Service Publications 'Factory Photos' disc. They show a 11CAB F30 134in WB tanker. I have dealt with this line of trucks for 40 odd years and never seen any but these 3 photos.

Now the IBG kit can be built as a 12 CAB or 13 CAB but I believe this tanker was NOT produced in 12 or 13 cab versions on the 134in SWB chassis but rather on the 158in LWB Chassis. Now the major difference between the 11 and 12 cabs is that the 11 Cab has a one piece radiator mesh grill with just a flat panel on top to get to the engine compartment where as the 12 cab had a bonnet (hood) and split front grill.







Hope this helps

Cliff,
Thank you for your response! The photos are great, I appreciate you taking time out to dig them up for me. I was afraid that this might be the case, that the no. 12 and 13 cab were both incorrect for the kitted version. I may end up building with the no. 12 but with the caveat that the SWB version was never fitted with the petrol tanker. Hopefully, people will be able to use the cabs on different projects as well as mix and match other versions of the SWB CMP.
Cheers,
Rick

I did make a typo as I should have said 11 cab C30 and not 11 cab F30.
