YES! I agree with you.


Must be a good reason why they have not, but I don’t know what that is. They’ve been in business 15 years so I’m sure must have considered it.

Van der Vlist MB Actros 6x2 with Nooteboom Euro PX 2 axle:























This is my first model with the newly tooled 2 axle trailer from WSI. Overall it has been done very well and is a nice wee trailer. My two criticisms are:

1. The plastic wedges that insert into the trailer on the gooseneck are really tight at first and very hard to insert properly.

2. There are no deck extensions to extend the width, which is a shame for this trailer as they often carry light but oversize loads such as agricultural machinery.

Zürcher MB Arocs 2.3m 8x6 with Nooteboom Euro PX:



















Been really looking forward to the MB and it does not disappoint. Kinda wished I had bought the Volvo when it came out now but I didn't and now they are also hard to come by.

I do not have all my trucks and cranes on display but certainly quite a lot.

If I had some CAT yellow paint I’d be doing the same.

I do not have any official CAT paint,but,I got a very close match,from a high street,car and bike store.So close,I have used it on CAT machines,and you cannot tell I have replaced parts.So,for those hinges,it's perfect.

If you go to a Cat dealership they have touch up paint in a spray can. You can simply spray the paint into something like a medicine cup and then easily brush it onto your model for touch-up etc. if you don't want to mask and spray. Hope that helps. Take care and all the best.
