I have not heard much else about the Wagner truck either but I am sure it will appear at some point.

Dear all,
Today I received a couple more models. Here is the first one from LTM and it is the DAF XF105 8x4 in the livery of Köhler Schwerlast.









The LTR 1100 was the nearest spare model I could find! But at 52t or so it is okay on this trailor





I think this is a great looking model and would make a fantastic addition to any HH fans collection.

Second up is the Westdijk Volvo with 4 axle Nooteboom:














This also a great model and looks really good next to its brother!

Thanks for looking,

Paul R

Some excellent photos Paul and fabulous models!
I love the collection of 'Windmill' models. Very impressive.
One quick question, do they all have the same basic trailer and carrier even on the different loads?

And quite jealous as see you got the Westdijk Volvo which I have been trying to locate. Think they are all gone nowd'oh!

All the trailers are basically the same but the carriers are a little different, depending on what it is carrying. The trailers also have some small details that are different between each model.

I have had a quick look around and could not find one either on this side of the pond, however DHS do have it listed: Volvo Westdijk

Paul, you really have some great looking models, Congratulations on the new additions. I think more of us here in the USA need to get in touch with someone over at Sword models and ask for some unique / special liveries on future releases. The European 1:1 Market is definitely more into (for lack of a better term) special decorations on their Trucks, that much is obvious. But I think we still could get some more interesting liveries from the US Truck Market for our models over here. ... Prt

Very nice models paul and well taken pics! Now if only WSI would release these new trailers.

Its an interesting point about the mctigue not being as well finished, i heard at the show sunday that WSI have two different finish levels for their models which afect the quality of paint, graphics and details. There is meant to be a higher and lower level obviously the higher costs more.. maybe the mctigue was done on the lower level? Anyone know anything about this?

Noel,
I have not heard of this before. Nearly all my models from WSI have been of a very high standard, which is why this one stood out so much.
May be there is some truth behind what you heard but I would be surprised.

I believe that certainly with the East West that this is a pre-production batch with lower quality decals, & supplied without a certificate. I collected mine on Sunday but was aware of this before hand. The smaller decals on the door of mine are blurred.Sad

I have always been told that there were no pre-production models that made it to the market. Certainly I waited for this one for long enough. If the photos appear to be blurred then that is due to the photo, not the model as the decals appear very sharp when I look at them on the model.

As for the certificate, I was not aware there was supposed to be one. I have heard no mention of this on the PCM website or on other forums where this model has been discussed in depth.

Its the telephone numbers on the cab of my East West that are barely readable. All of my other PCM WSI have had certicates with them.

Some of them do have certificates, but certainly not all of them. Have you called PCM and asked? They would probably change it for you.

Just when I thought it was all over, another one dropped onto my doorstep this morning:

Scania 8x4 in the livery of van Maanen











I really do like this colour Smile Unfortunately this model has suffered some paint chips on the left side so it may have to go back Sad

Thanks for looking,

Beautiful collection you are growing Paul! You are going to need your own truck stop soon (whatever the UK term for that is?) I picked up the WJ Law myself, I do really like that van Maanen, a very sharp model that I will put on the list.

Regards,
Mark

Well, this little beauty turned up today and what a cracker it is!!

















The real rig has/does transport a BG22 so I thought the BG24 was close enough Smile





This has been long awaited for but certainly worth it!
