Steve,

I think that it is an Ukrainian (ex-USSR) KrAZ 256 6x4 dump truck: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KrAZ

I hope this helps.

A Berliet tractor/box semi-trailer that became famous in the film "Cent mille dollars au soleil" gathering famous French actors (Belmondo, Blier, Ventura, etc) in the Sahara desert (our "last frontier" at that time):

Steve,

It's not: MiniCams have that truck in their catalog but in a 1/50 scale only (see below):



Other French modelers, like LBS or Perfex, produce it in a 1/43 scale with tipping or recovery bodies: this one looks like a LBS unit.

I hope this helps.

For modelmaniac, both tippers versions, with a Berliet GLM (in SCREG livery) and its successor within the Renault range (fleet nr 527):

Steve,

The combination is a Willeme LC 610 4x2 tractor towing a Fruehauf 2-axle semi-trailer:



The model was first made early sixties by Dinky Toys France, but with a 1/55 scale Willeme towing a 1/50 Fruehauf. That one was produced by Ixo in a consistent 1/43 scale for one of the Altaya collections. To see more about it:

https://www.carmodel.com/fr/edicola/semi-rem001/1-43/willeme/lc610-truck-semi-remorque-transport-du-cerf-1952/84975

Ixo are producing quite a lot of these (nicely-made) 1/43 models, to be sold exclusively by press groups.

I hope this helps.
Guy
