In order to build the Berliet TBO 15 oversized tipper, presented earlier:



Jean-Francois had found 20 large tires, just enough to build from scratch its Berliet successor, equipped with a M3 cab.
Some pictures, at construction stage, using a modified Minitrucks cab:

Jean-Jacques had in mind for a long time to model one of Richelmi's Mercedes-Benz LP 6x4 tractors.
The end-result obtained by fitting a Minitrucks cab onto a modified Conrad chassis:

To be precise, these trucks are GBOs and not TBOs, as the "T" should only refer to tractor versions.
Sorry for the mistake.

Steve,

The only place where I could find that equipment trailer was Fritzes Modellbörse in Germany, either solo or paired with the pick-up. I suspect that they were produced exclusively by HiMoBo for them and I didn't check if it was ever made available in the States or somewhere else.
Unfortunately, there are not for sale anymore there: https://fmb-shop.de/shop/de/search?sSearch=Himobo but as often, I suppose that more batches will be made available later. So may I recommend to visit regularly their website and check for availability.

I hope it helps.
Guy


Gents,

Please note that the HiMoBo trailer is available again at Fritzes Modellbörse: https://fmb-shop.de/shop/de/sortiment/modelle-1-50/lkw-modelle/lkw-einzelteile/7612/43299-himobo-us-pick-up-auflieger-schwarz?c=1122

A model recently built by Jean-Jacques, the Berliet GLR8 tipper in Nicoletti livery.
It can be seen here below during a ditch clearing operation, being loaded by a Poclain excavator, together with 2 other Nicoletti vehicles (a Renault 1000kg van and a 1950s Berliet GDR7 tipper), while a Richelmi Berliet GLA passes on the road to deliver building material to another working site:

Still in France but on the 21st century, an "expensive recovery" (the load is worth 37.2 millions Euros), within Philsbourg military air base premises of a French Army helicopter having experienced a landing gear problem:

The Lancer loader, very useful in places where long material is stored as it helps reducing dramatically the width of transit lanes between storage areas:





The road combination loaded and ready to move:
