I saw recently that First Gear has released some Volvo VNR 300 Day Cab's in 1:50 scale. They have also released a tanker to match, the delivery date says May-June but I'm unsure that they are indeed 1:50 they look like 1:64-1:87 judging by pre-production pictures.

Personally I hope First Gear makes some Volvo VHD 200 dump's in an axle back configuration.

A simple search of the internet turns up the following page:

https://www.firstgearonline.com/product-store/trucks/brands/volvo

There will be tractors only in 1:50 scale and the tractor w/tank trailers will be 1:87 scale.

Pics on their site look pretty nice. Wonder what trailer they plan to offer with it or if a 53' van is in play here.

At the MATS First Gear had a booth with a sample of a 1:50 tank trailer and a van. They told me there was a new 1:50 truck coming as well, but would not reveal what it was, but now we know. They also had a new 1:64 dry bulk tanker and when I told them they should do those in 1:50 as well they said that they had gotten that response from quite a few people there.

A dry bulk tanker would do well. Would like a few myself. The Volvo I can see mated up with a nice van trailer or shown with one of the sword schneiders I have. What kinda tanker was it food, water or chemical grade or fuel style?

The Schneider Brenner tanker is a Chemical tanker.

Looks just like the 1:87 one, whatever that would be. Don't know my tank trailers that well. There is a pic on their facebook page, I'll try the link thing but I'm not very good at that stuff. The 1:50 trailers are on the top center shelf.https://www.facebook.com/FirstGearInc/photos/a.303817839733498.71769.166779650103985/1243899599058646/?type=3&theater

Could be chem or food. Thanks for sharing will look to pick up a few volvos with a few vans and a tanker. That bulk one would be nice. Hope they take note of what people would want. The R's would be nice in 1:50
