Early 2000s, another diorama displayed by Azur Modelisme.
As often on this type of display, too much activities (road repairs, dismantling and construction, construction site opening, etc) in this little village supporting a very dense traffic!

A British heavy haulage move by Sunters from Northallerton (UK), somewhere around 1983-84:

Smith modified kit), two 8-line Nicolas modular trailers with bolsters (MVI modified kits with Zon Models elements) and a Titan GmbH 2632S 6x4/2 ballasted heavy tractor used as a pusher (built from a 2-axle Conrad model). The load is a Beaird Industries refinery distillation tower of 245 tonnes (homemade with Zon Models bits and pieces)



To be followed.

MVI - a French small model builder specialised in fire engines - was offering in the early eighties some highly detailed Nicolas 4-line modules: each line could be directed from the tow bar, providing that you managed to cut and form all brass bars found in the box to exact length. These difficulties (plus numerous others) resulted in all lines being now fixed and equipped with Dinky Toys tires, much more realistic that the ones originally offered:

A few models made by Jean-Francois.
The MAN 32-240 DHAK - shown already - was made from a Zon Models chassis kit with a Mangin resin cab and a Conrad crane:



The DAF NTT 2826 DKA - already seen as well. Its chassis is from the same origin but fitted with a Lion Toys cab:
