Had the Felbermayr TGA telestep and TGA Norager telestep turn up during the week. I have never been convinced of the white wheel covers found on some Felbermayr trucks but the model actually doesn't look that bad.

Thanks for looking,

The Brame Scania 6x4 with long wheel base and 2+4 Nooteboom trailer has also arrived:















The Liebherr 944 tunnelling machine makes a great load!









I really like the Brame livery and especially this latest one as I took photos of the 1:1 version a while back Smile

That is signature for Felbermayr MAN trucks, they don't come off.

I gotta go against the grain here,I think the wheel trims look great on the big Man,probably due to them being white and going nicely with the blue and white cab,don't think they would look half as good in a different colour though,makes a change from chrome or polished alcoa wheels and the tacky looking painted wheels,I may be bitting the bullet and succumbing to one,just one,if they came without blade I'd have bought all 400 of them Teeth

Why is "phonetically" spelt with a "ph"?

The complex of Newgrange was originally built between c. 3100 and 2900 BC,[2] meaning that it's aproximately 5,000 years old. According to Carbon-14 dates,[3] it is more than 500 years older than the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt, and predates Stonehenge by about 1,000 years.

Stangeland Scania R620 8x4 with bolt on axle. I have been waiting for this model in eager anticipation since the day I first knew about it! And it does not disappoint! For me, this is up there for WSI model of the year. I think it is absolutely stunning. Only thing that would improve this model is the Stangeland LTR1100 as the load.

Another great day and even warming up slightly Smile Received this on Tuesday and got some pictures this morning. Another great model by WSI/Mammoet Store, but there are a couple of things I wish could have been added. I have listed these after the pictures:


































The Scheuerle Inter-Combi's are packed with detail and are also quite heavy - not much plastic used. Axles turn well and have vertical movement to replicate the suspension. Included in the box is a number of steering rod which allow you to change the steering characteristics of the modules. However, this brings me to my first wish. Having not been around this type of trailer I struggle to understand how the steering can be changed as there is no information with the model. In this case, I think some information on the modules and their various configurations would have been great. I tried searching on the internet for some info but no luck so far. I also believe that these modules can used in a push/pull configuration so I was rather hoping that a coupling at the back and perhaps a drawbar would have been included to allow for this. Sadly that is not the case. For those that have or will have one of these, you will be very impressed I think and in my opinion it is worth the price. One word of warning, be careful with the connecting rod between the drawbar and module axles. The threads on mine were filled with paint and I had some issues cleaning them out!

One last thing - as mentioned earlier, I have not experience with the 1:1 version so if the configurations I have used are incorrect or some statements not true to life, I apologise in advance.

Thanks,

Paul R

This is certainly one of the MWT's I have looked forward quite a lot, not least because it has the new 4 axle jeep and all the tool boxes mounted.

Nice to see the front cover now:





The tool boxes look great!

Zach,
Sections don't come with lifting points but it wouldn't be hard to make one.

It is funny how things work out. When I got the Mammoet Scheuerle set I was wanting a load but didn't know what. After a while I found a few pictures and decided on what I wanted so contacted Jason (Hummer13) to build one for me. The spooky thing is that even before I had decided what I wanted, he had already built it!

Here it is:









Thanks for a great job Jason!
