That Sword logger is amazing! They made some tree harvesters too and they're all beautiful little models. I don't have them so it's nice to see them here.

Jamiescotland,

I agree with you: both Valmet models built by Sword in a 1/50 scale are full of details and amazing.
The tracked 445 EXL Valmet unit is shown somewhere else in this topic, as a load on an European Mercedes-Benz/Nooteboom combination.

In France during the same period:







Volvo FH3-T540 6x4/2 tractor (modified IMC model) and Broshuis SP A 4ASD 18-40-1 4-axle extendable low bed lowboy fitted with 4 wheel wells (WSI model) carrying a 30.3 tonnes Doosan DA 40 articulated 6x6 dumper (Glover World model),
