Bus of the TNL company (Transports de Nice et du Littoral - Nice area - France) modeled in a 1/50 scale by CIJ-Norev. Dinky Toys produced in the sixties a slightly more "toyish" version - you could open all doors by pushing down its front suspension - in both Paris and Lyons transport companies liveries:







Berliet PCM-U444 4x2/2 city bus (modified CIJ-Norev model).

Guy nice pictures of the collection, that dump trailer is great I love that telescopic dump piston. Your team does spectacular work. That line painter looks like a hot rod.
Thanks

Guy: The colors of the Corgi KW go well with the blue of the Gradall. that Corgi came from the Jack Daniels livery I think. Anyway, if you want to make the KW into a Day cab, it is very easy. There is a full window on the back of the cab and the sleeper comes off with just one screw removed. That way, the KW is longer and you can add a lift(tag) axle to it, along with headache rack, electrical lines,hydraulics, and a tool box. I did mine that way, and what a great looking heavy hauler it is. Craig

Craig,

I think that the Kenworth used for the combination above was rhe 3-axle Guinness tractor unit.
I have in addition two 4-axle Kenworth trucks made from 3-axle units with sleeping box: one fitted with a 2nd single-axle and a dual-tyred 2nd axle unit. Both were fitted with a long wheelbase and large sleeping box, as Corgi produced 2 types of boxes on their Kenworths (a long and a short one):





I hope it helps.
Guy

Craig,

Both goosenecks shown on above pictures are A. Smith Trail King lowloaders kits (a 3+1-axle and a 3+3+3-axle units) which have been waiting for a coat of paint for many years now.

Guy the Corgi Kenworths look real nice, do you have any with the sleeper taken off? That seems like it would make a nice heavy hauler with a day cab like Craig was speaking of. The red Kenworth looks good with the A Smith set up, is that the trailer you are going to keep on top of the Kenworth or do you have a tractor with a longer frame, and for God sake will you please paint the A Smith.
Thanks
Steve

Steve,

I have no Corgi Kenworth with the sleeping box removed.
I plan to paint the Trail King 3+3+3 unit one of these days, once I have proceeded to the modification of the jeep dolly short gooseneck, so that it can fit the 3-axle lowboy when running empty, with its front jeep dolly + long gooseneck assembly and rear stinger on-board, as for the real unit.

Regards.
Guy

Guy thanks for the response , I will look forward to see that Trail King 3+3+3 in its finished state, see if you can get Jean-Francois to put working hydraulics on the gooseneck. 👍👍
Thanks

Guy great pictures, I have to get me one of those Renault conventional trucks. That Volvo water truck came out out very nice is that body brass or styrene?
Thanks

Steve,

Many thanks for your comments.
I've never seen Jean-Francois building tanks from styrene and I know that he prefers welding brass or gluing plastic, so I suspect the water tank to be 100% one of these. I'll check with him and come back to you on this.

I hope it helps.
Guy
