wildpig1234,

That was a mid-80s/90s truck model, originally built by Conrad as a salt sprayer, which ended-up with its bed as a 1/50 standard transport truck.

Regards.

Wildpig1234,

To answer your question: yes, I have about ten times more trucks and tractors (1137 to-date) than lifting equipment (124 registered to-date, including cranes and elevators, wreckers, access equipment...).

I hope this helps.

Scandinavian logging transport in progress (the truck, made on a Conrad basis received from an American fellow collector, should one day be complemented by a 1+2-axle logging drawbar trailer):





IVECO LD 240 E42 F/P 6x2/2 logging truck (modified Conrad model) fitted with a Palfinger/Epsilon M 120Z96 forestry hydraulic crane (Conrad model) and loaded with 19 tonnes of poplar trees cuts (homemade load)

That Iveco looks really good.Did you modify that back bumper/light bar?Only,as all the ones I have are all straight.That one looks like three angles.I have modified a logging crane,basically upside down,for a tipper,with a clamshell grab.Very common in the U.K.

Modelmaniac,

Many thanks for your interest to this topic.
The back bumper (originally part of a damaged Conrad Volvo F 6x4 logging truck) had suffered some damages on one side, I just bent both sides the same way. I then added to the Conrad bare 6x2 model the Volvo logging body fitted with white metal poles bought from Bemo Models (before they were bought by Tekno), a Conrad forestry crane and various Conrad wheels.

I hope this helps.
Guy
