Guy: I love the red Iveco with the equipment. If you remember the Bobcat rig with four pieces of Bobcat equipment, I loved that piece though it wasn't as realistic as yours. Yours also offers different pieces of equipment. Good looking rig. Craig

Craig,

Many thanks for your support.

As far as I remember, the Wan Ho set you refer to is made of various scales: the tractor is undersized (a 1/53 scale Tonkin crude reproduction?), while the 48' flatbed seems to be a true 1/50, same for the Bobcat units on its flatbed.
I have found a few of those semi-trailers for mods: frames under the bed are far too thin and their landing legs oversized, but all should become excellent Dorsey FB 48' units (see one below being modified, with a WSI tractor):



I hope it helps.
Guy

Guy: That Bobcat Freightliner is touted by at least one "old" Dealer as 1/50 scale. It is a cheap reproduction. I did like the flatbed though you are right about the landing gears and frame. The bed of the flatbed and those gorgeous chrome wheels made it work for me. When joined with a Conrad Freightliner cabover, it's a good looking rig. Be well. Craig

They made a updated version with a norscot Pete 379 and the S750 and E35

Remember when it comes to equipment the older and more obscure the better

A Cat 225 will beat a 320EL hands down
