Mammoet Trojan 8870:













And before anyone asks, yes it is a resin model and not diecast. Details are decent but it does not have features like diecast would such as steerable axles.

They had 9 A60H's, 4 A40's and 3 A30's at the one project with the EC950F, 2 EC700's and 3 EC750's. Not sure how many ADT's in total they have.

Collins are the first,to test(for Volvo) and operate the a60,in the u.k.They are also the first to operate the ec950f.It can fully load the a60,in a very quick time.It is an impressive machine.Really like those decals.Is WSI making the ec950f in Collins livery?

Yes WSI are making the EC950F. Sold out soon after it was announced! Also the Volvo FH with Nooteboom low loader.

I heard the 950F will load the A60H in 4 passes, about 45 seconds.

Lochwinnoch Scania S 6x4 with Nooteboom Euro Lowloader and Jeep Dolly:

The real model comes with a WSI Nooteboom Euro PX 2 bed 4 but I swapped it for the NZG 2 bed 5 with Jeep Dolly. The real truck does pull both trailers but the one below is the one it normally pulls.

Not at all! I am always looking for something different for my models as I don't always like the bog standard manfuacturer colours. So I Googled "CAT 390F L" and Nordic popped up. I will add a hammer to it so it is closer to the pic I found.

I just liked the Nordic logo so went with it and thought that my American friends might appreciate it Wink Now the company want 10 models done for themselves!
