Applause That load looks really good.Are those darker grey bits for mounting,(final placing/installation)or lifting/transport?Looks,to me,like the weight can rest,on them.

modelmaniac,

The 4 grey supports were used during the last 20 miles of the transformer trip (Sutton Bridge harbor to Bicker Fen substation site) managed in UK by ALE, with the load resting via these on their 2x11-line girders trailer:

Above picture from P. Rose, who provided me with the equipment weight (he got it direct from one ALE Trojan driver).

I hope it helps.
Guy

Citroën "Belphégor" light truck in progress by Jean-Jacques, by fitting a resin cab on an ex-Corgi dropside chassis:





Renault "Fainéant" 4x4 tipper in progress ("Fainéant" means "Lazy Boy" in French, a nickname widely used for this Renault truck fitted with an under-floor engine, in recognition to its poor road performance), being made from various Minitrucks bits and pieces:

Sammler-Mamfredo,

The heavy truck was made by Jean-Jacques from a SAVIEM modified Minitrucks kit base. I don't think that it ever existed in STAG's fleet.

Back to Great Britain with a transport from Stiller:



[... ] it seems to me that the railway "demountable non-wheeled tank" is widely oversized as the capacity indicated on the side (8 tonnes) should result in a much smaller 1/50 unit. [...] Therefore, any information on the 1/1 scale mobile tank modeled by Corgi is more than welcome [...]


Gents,

I think that I have found a picture of the container modeled by Corgi. It is a "1961 8 tonnes Carmichael unit" used to carry bulk malt:



As I'm not a railway specialist to guess from flatcar dimensions, difficult for me to finally state if the 1/50 Corgi load is oversized or not!

Once, I am going to derogate to the title of this topic in presenting some models from Steve, an American fellow collector, regularly sending me pictures of his - typically American - modifications.
"Exkvate3140", that's the member's "name" he chose, has gone away for some time now, following some "verbal" escalation in this forum. Let's hope that this will help to have him back soon here(*):

- A tipping combination with a Mack F700 of IMC/WSI origin:





- An ex-Conrad Freightliner, equipped with an extra-long wheelbase:





Note (*): I didn't ask him permission to post these pictures. I nevertheless hope that this is OK for him.

To be continued.

- Two Fire Replicas vintage Mack trucks, towing Conrad tipping semi-trailers:



- a Mack DM 800 (Fire Replicas) and a 4-axle lowboy with its 2-axle jeep dolly:



- I didn't know that resin-made Fire Replicas models were 100% static. Steve modified them to have rolling wheels allround:

Yes Guy, Steve is a very cool operator. Having been a site developer for many years, he has seen all types of heavy equipment. After a horrible accident on the job, he is confined to the modeling end of it now. He can sometimes sit in a loader, but with extreme pain. He is actually quite good at customizing. His 3D printer skills can make some excellent parts. I have many of his pieces for trucks and equipment. He can't paint worth a hoot though!! Steve is more than happy to help out a fellow collector. I always hear him say that "He's never throwing out any model. He will take them to his grave". CAW

Hello Craig,

Many thanks for your post: I didn't know at all about Steve past job accident and resulting health problems.
He sent me an e.mail yesterday indicating that posting pictures of his customized models was OK; no mention of any date for him to come back to this forum, though.

Keep in touch.
Guy
