Description

190 Coles EMA Crane 3d printed model kit

The Coles EMA. From 1937 until the end of the war Coles developed the EMA unit through the MK2 to Mk3 and eventually Mk7. Often the EMA petrol-electric crane unit with 5 ton lift, were fitted to a militarised version of the 6 ton Thorneycroft Amazon 6 x 4 lorry chassis. It was supplied to the RAF for aircraft salvage and maintenance duties. About 2000 were produced during World War II, of which the RAF had 1800 (400 with diesel engines). The basics changed little, eventually reaching eventually reaching a 6 ton load, they were reliable and easy to maintain. The crane units were also fitted to other bases including rail and road trailers so I made them as a stand alone for versatility.

Often found mounted on the Amazon, loading/unloading a Queen Mary trailer towed by a Bedford OX
