Paul: This question may have been answered before, but what is the standard in Europe for reflective safety striping on trailers and trucks? Those models shown above have yellow striping on some and the typical red and white danger signs on some. Beautiful pictures and models. Thanks as usual. Craig

Craig,
I have to be honest and say I don’t know the answer to that. I’ve seen both types used so I guess I’d have to assume there’s not a standard on colour but more that something has to be used.

I think,as long as the vehicle(whatever it is)tractor,or trailer,is clearly identified,for the job it does.There are no specific standards.It varies from country to country.For instance,the Frank Norager trucks(Denmark)even though they usually pull very long trailers,have no striping on them.They usually travel in a convoy,so they will not suddenly appear,they have escorts,so they don't need any special markings.Trucks that travel on their own,have to be clearly seen,by any driver,so they usually have beacons,striping,signage(wide/heavy load)The STGO 1,2,3,4,board will cover all weights.So it can be identified,from the other side of the road.

Actually there are very clear instructions of what is mandatory and what is allowed. And they are EU laws, so they don't vary from country to country, although I am not sure if it is European Union only, or the whole of Europe. There was a period where trucks were allowed to run without due to easing into the rules, but now it's 100% on there, or else you're toast.
The vehicle must have reflective striping on full sides and rear and there are clear instructions on minimum requirements. Simple rules are that on sides you can use either yellow or white reflective striping, while the rear is mandatory in red. There also can't be any areas that are without reflective striping larger than 1 meter. Etc etc.

It varies. Edward Mackay was custom made decals but some are promotional items with decals already applied.

Nice fleet I like the photos and the models shown here. Quick question most American rigs have 3 connections for air and electric for the trailer. On the rear there it shows 4 trailer connections can someone explain? especially since on the new American WSI Pete and KW they have the same set up. Thanks in advance.

I had this in my collection several years ago when it was released but sold it on. I decided that was a mistake so recently found another one!
