The DAF 6x4 seen on the left below was built by Jean-Francois by fitting a Tekno cab on a Joal chassis:





The Renault 370 4x2 tractor below was produced in limited series by a small French model producer, "Tchoutchou":

Sorry for the mistake: the model producer is Truck Polo and not Tchoutchou.

You and your single axle trucks. That looks like a modified Corgi. They use it to smooth out the ice on skating rinks. CAW

Steve,

Craig is right: the Mack was originally an old 6x4 from Corgi Toys. As Jean-Paul preferred a 4x2, he simply asked Jean-Francois to modify it and to upgrade the Corgi model.

I hope it helps.

Q thanks for your input, do the Hurricanes think this is a best of 20 series or are they just in a hurry to perform with Disney on Ice.
The Zamboni was originally built on a Jeep chassis, not a Mack chassis but how would an old man from NC know that.

Guy, Craig is right, now that is a statement not heard at all on this forum. As the saying goes “even a very old broken clock is right twice a day”. Thank you for your response and information.

Doesn't Jeep own Volvo, the Bruins, and the Redsox? I wouldn't drive a Volvo to the Stanley Cup Finals. A Mercedes, oh yeah!!!

Q Gretzky, you won’t be driving a Volvo, Benz or even your Smart Car to The Stanley Cup finals because the Hurricanes are going to get blown out to sea like most of the dud hurricanes do. Will your Smart car make it to Boston to see a real NHL team compete for Lord Stanley’s Cup, if so pack it up with your beef jerky and Ensure and head north and don’t forget your pet sheep and pet gerbil. Hey Provincetown on the Cape is less than an hour away that won’t be to hard of a drive on your rear end or will it?
On the road to the Cup.

All-wheel drive Bedford MKs and MJs were produced in large quantities (11700 units) for the British Army but exported for other foreign armies as well:





Bedford MJ 82 BMO 4x4/2 carrier fitted with a Marshall dropside body (modified Corgi model for which I still have to find the right olive-drab British Army paint to replace the one used for its body) towing a Royal Ordnance Factory QF 25Pdr Mk3 1-axle gun (Corgi model)
