Hello Chuck,

Many thanks for your support.

There should be much more pictures of our collections in the coming future: if I had to summarise, I would say that Jean-Francois is producing quite a lot of homemade very detailed models, while Jean-Jacques is mainly concentrating on French 1960s/1970s truck models; Jean-Paul has - among other things - a wide collection of Berliet 1/50 trucks and myself I collect almost anything, as long as it is, either in a 1/48 or in a 1/50 scales.

Regards.
Guy

modelmaniac,

The French company Marrel is still in existence today: http://www.marrel.com/welcome/
They are one of the European leaders, as far as hydraulic systems and tipping units are concerned.

Wynns Heavy Haulage of Newport (Wales) had 2 of their heavy tow trucks repainted in black and assigned to a Nicolas girder trailer, owned by GEC.
Corgi reproduced a road haulage of a 254 tonnes electrical stator., between the GEC Stafford factory and the Isle of Grain.
The combination comprises a ballasted Scammell Contractor Mk1 6x4/2 heavy tow truck, a 2x9-line modular Nicolas girder trailer and a Scammell Contractor Mk1 6x4/2 heavy pusher:
