MAN TGE 4.180K 4x2/2 double cab light truck with Schoon dropside body* (Conrad model) carrying 4.04 tonnes of Barthe bricks (WSI elements),







Note*: in a foreseable future, the model should tow an ECIM PE 35 TA 350 2-axle low bed light trailer (Creatpshop kit to be built) loaded with a Wacker-Neuson 701S skid-steer compact loader (Siku model).

In 1995, MAN Nutzfahrzeuge proceeded to a consumption road test between Edinburgh (Scotland) and Bari (Italy). The test involved 3 road combinations (two 463hp tractors and one 422hp unit, all towing specially-designed Kögel box semi-trailers), which will only use in average 25.8 litres per 100 kms (the continental European consumption calculation figure is in litres used to drive 100 kms, while UK is indicating driven distances for a fixed volume of fuel). That exceptionally low value (a cost-conscious driving method combined to low drag coefficient sets) contributed largely to MAN Trucks sales expansion in Europe from that date:







MAN 19.422 FLS 4x2/2 tractor and Kögel Phoenixx 3-axle streamlined box semi-trailer (Conrad models, fifth wheel and king pin to be modified),



One 463hp set which took part of the Eco-Challenge:

To be continued.

The Autaa combination has, since received a more plausible load (found for sale in a French model shop):

On another forum, a member indicated - rightly - to me that Arocs trucks are, either 4440 or 4442, but can't be 4441s (410hp being a power figure assigned to Actros units only). Moreover, the "K"digit is not mandatory as the 6x6 truck is probably built from a bare chassis-cab unit and not from a tipping body unit, which - with Mercedes-Benz - is represented by the "K" digit (for "Kipper" in German).

Therefore, modifications made above: sorry for the mistake.

Love the Demag H55s. I have both models and think they're great. I need to replace the tracks with metal ones and maybe add black window seals (something I do on a lot of older diecast models!)

Back from when I started truck modelling (some models being saved from my childhood are in a smaller scale than 1/50, wise collectors will recognize them!), some vehicles of a transport company operating in the Algerian desert:



With, from left to right:

- Berliet TLM 10 4x2/2 tractor with winch (modified Dinky Toys model) and Titan France 1-axle oilfield flatbed semi-trailer (homemade), carrying a drilling site cabin of unknown brand (homemede),
- General Motors Co/???? modified CCKW 353 6x6/2 truck with dropside body and recovery lifting beam (modified Verem model), towing a Bantam T3 1/4 Ton 1-axle trailer (modified Solido model),
- Citroën/Herwaythorn modified T46 4x4/2 light truck with dropside body (modified Dinky Toys model) and Bantam T3 1/4 Ton 1-axle trailer (modified Solido model),
- Unic ZU121 4x2/2 tractor and Trailor 1-axle pole carrier semi-trailer (modified Dinky Toys models) loaded with 16 Acieries de Pompey 316L 8" sch.180 oil pipe-line lengths (homemade),
- SIMCA/Marmon-Herrington Cargo F59 W 4x4/2 truck with oilfield body (modified Dinky Toys model),

Another combination, dating back from my "Sahara desert" period:



Berliet GBO 15 P 6x6/2 oilfield truck with 5th wheel, lifting poles and winch (modified Dinky Toys model) and Coder 2-axle oilfield flatbed semi-trailer (modified Solido model), loaded with 6 Vallourec 16" 316L gas pipe-line lengths (homemade, to be completed),







The model was extensively used since my childhood: sorry for its poor overall status.

As a bonus, the same truck used in the Sahara desert by the SN REPAL, the Algerian oil and gas national company. It must be noted - the man near the tandem being used as a comparison tool - that the Dinky Toys model was produced in a smaller scale than 1/50:
