Another example of use of the 10 metres semi-trailer.
In order to be able to deliver in town centres on a 24-hour basis, the Dutch carrier S. Loos designed, with Mercedes-Benz and Heiwo assistance, a low emission unit (natural gas-powered engine), very agile and moving "silently" at night:

Guy very interesting models, you really have the transportation problems figured out over there. We just go over curbs and flatten signs over here. The Mercedes cab almost has the look of a commuter bus, which makes sense because they are used throughout the cities. Your team has to get a group photo of all your models together, it is probably not possible however unless you can rent a sports stadium. Great photos, great customizations and great collection.

Steve,

The Mercedes-Benz Econic cab has a flat low floor designed to easy exits/entries of the driver and its assistants throughout a working day: that's why a lot of rubbish collecting trucks and delivery vehicles have adopted it here in Europe.

I hope it helps.

Guy thanks for the information, I was going to say garbage trucks looked similar but the first thing that hit me was how much they looked like the buses in the cities. As I said your side has the transportation situation figuered out (that sounds pretty good).

Steve,



The bonneted truck at rear is a Renault pulling a Kaiser Karat 2-axle tipping semi-trailer, both being from MiniCams origin.
Looking at the size of the hydraulic ram at front, the semi-trailer could be a Conrad one, towed by a MiniCams COE Renault.

I hope it helps.

In Germany, car garages are often prefabricated by specialists and carried/placed on site by very specific trucks, equipped with a lifting arm designed for that sole use:

Initially, I planned to install the Siku Trautwein arm on a Conrad day-cabbed 8x4 but couldn't find any at that time, accepting the placement beam under its chassis between 1st and 2nd axles. I therefore upgraded the 1/50 Siku model (undersized wheels were replaced by Teknos, hydraulic rams were painted, support corners for the garage were widened to accept 3 metres wide garages, etc). The "metallic" garage sold with the model (which is generally built on site and not carried/placed that way) was changed to a homemade concrete prefabricated one:



The original Siku model:



Trautwein, German company which took-over the Claus design and licence, produces a lifting arm which only works on the same axis than the truck. Other competitors, among which Deuriger, have an arm that can turn 90 degrees to place the garage sideways. A few links dedicated to German prefabricated garages carriers:

Sorry for the misspelling: the German trailers and equipment construction company was called Klaus (and not Claus).

Guy as usual some new and interesting. First time I have ever seen this, and the links you added are great. Your prefab concrete garage looks much better than the one that came with the model. Is that prefab garage common on a new house being constructed or is it used for additions and remodeling?

Steve,

In Germany, you can find these prefabricated garages, either close to new houses or added to upgraded existing ones. They even can be seen, grouped in rows, on the parking lot of some buildings. That's common stuff very popular over there.

Guy your country obviously likes their vehicles, any kind. So it is not hard to believe those garages would be common sites.
Thanks for the response and information.
