Hello gents,

I have been collecting transport, heavy haulage, craneage and plant equipment in a 1:50 scale in South of France for many years and I met in 2010 some other fellow collectors in a model show held in Menton (French Riviera, close to the Italian border), part of the "Azur Modelisme" association concentrating on haulage and plant equipment at the same scale.

Key members of that association - Jean-Jacques, Jean-Francois and Jean-Paul, the "3J" - have first agreed to share their collection on some French forums, and accepted today that I could display our collections on this international one.

I therefore offer to open a new subject in this forum, dedicated to our models.

Best regards.
Guy (the "G" from 3J&G).

A STAG (French heavy haulage company, now disappeared) convoy from Azur Modelisme origin.

The front tow truck - a Willeme TG 180 - and the pusher - a Berliet TBO 15 M3 - both Minitrucks kits, are moving a Goldhofer THP6 modular semi-trailer with a 2-axle Nooteboom dolly (Zon Models kits). The load is made of an-ex Peugeot 403 car petrol pump:

Hi Guy,

welcome aboard - thanks for sharing. Will never forget my first ride in a Berliet "porte-char" tractor. Or the bright red Pacifics used by DEWASME. Any chances of a Berliet GBO 15 6x6 Petrolier? That's one of my favourite heavy haulage tractors of all times. The French special transport scene is top notch.

Keep it rolling, Guy.
