The day you get the whole family out and show just how many of these you've got mate will be a fine day. I reckon we should start a campaign to get you to do it in the summer. Your collection must be massive!

Great pictures mate, always like to browse through this thread.

Obviously not WSI this time and only my 2nd Tekno model:















Got a great deal on eBay so took the chance.

Overall a nice model. As with most models, there are some errors but I can't chastise Tekno for that as no model is perfect. Detail is great and I do like the big trailer Smile

But as I am a self confessed WSI fan, I did feel rather sinful buying this..................... Whistle

Hello Paul,

I bought this model as well and I fully support your comments: very good model overall.
The only drawback I would mention is that Brouwer do not have - apparently - that kind of Goldhofer semi in their fleet: all pictures I found on the web so far show the "Tekno" BJ-RJ-60 Scania towing a 3-line/lowbed/5-line Scheuerle (!) unit.

Cheers.
Guy

Had a nice surprise when I got back this morning:











I love this model! Great livery and the Scheuerle modules are fantastic. Concrete load isn't too shabby either Wink

Again, not WSI but something found it's way into my bag again on the way back from the USA Whistle











Had given up hope on this one but never say never! It really is a great model and I am very happy to have it in my collection.

The behemoth has arrived!















This is truly an epic model and not for the faint hearted, both in terms of price and assembly when compared to other HH set ups!

Word of warning - the aerials are like hyperdermic (sp) needles and will stab you at every given opportunity! The only real gripe I have are still the con rods for the steering mechanism between the draw bar and first set of axles. Screws do not fit and I got through about 1/2 dozen trying to 'tap' the holes. Had a couple of con rods where the screw broke off in the hole so no longer usable. But there were several spare so had enough.

But aside from that, this really is an amazing model! May be one day I can have it set up with the PTC Teeth
