Steve,

Many thanks for your support.

Considering the drilling crew mobilization, it seems that the Richelmi disposal site will be subject to some construction activity:

Model cars in a 1/50 scale are so few that it's worth mentioning this one found recently on a British sales site for a very low price (*):





Note (*): Welly, producer of that BMW 535i 4x2/2 car, indicated a 1/43 scale on its box; the seller claimed a 1/50 scale and was displaying the model along a ruler: some more precise measurements when I received it show... a true 1/48 scale!

Guy great find on the 1/48 Bemmer. Also could you shed some light on the the ten wheeler with the yellow generator in the back, it looks like a real heavy duty truck, I like it.

The correct spelling for the slang version of a BMW automobile is "Bimmer", not "Bemmer" or "Beamer". The "Bemmer" or "Beamer" spelling is for BMW motorcycles. I'm sure you just misspelled it because you drive a Vespa. I just kicked ass on a M6 BMW last week. And the 10 wheeler appears to be just a Conrad Talbert, three axle lowboy with a European tractor. Leave the trucks to the big boys there bluebelly!!!

Steve,

I suppose that you mean that truck above: it is a Berliet GBC8 6x6 "Gazelle", developed in the sixties for the French Army in the Algerian desert. That was a light all-wheel drive truck, able to run easily in sandy deserts with 5 tonnes maximum payload, hence its nickname Gazelle. More than 30000 units were produced, in various versions, with a "M" or "M2"cab like here or with the 8KT torpedo-type cab.
In the nineties, units still available in the French Army were overhauled (to minimize costs of a new military truck program) by Renault into GBC 180s and fitted with a 180hp engine, replacing the original Berliet 125hp one.

If you want to know more about that long-life truck (in French, sorry): https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Berliet_GBC8_6x6_Gazelle and https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Renault_GBC_180

I think that the model above was a 1/50 kit originally sold by Minitrucks with a tipping body, which has been used by Jean-Jacques for another Berliet project.

I hope this helps.

Guy thanks again for the information and link.
Steve
Guy again please don’t pay any attention to the “big boy” who obviously has no clue between a generator and a well drilling rig, and where he came up with the Talbert trailer, no one on this forum will ever know. The only thing I can say is that it must be tough to be as old as The Q, God bless him and his drooling. Also I thought that bemmer was a motorcycle just a little mix up like the generator and the well drilling rig you Tarheel excuse me very old Tarheel.

Well St. Louis fan, you said background and yellow. So I looked at the 10 wheeler pulling the Talbert lowboy. A Renault huh? Now back to Golden State beating Toronto. Is there a Hockey team in Rhode Island, oh yes, the Bullhockeys. Charlotte just won the American League Championship hockey cup.

Guy; your trucks are neat. They are so beefy looking. Keep them coming. I'll post some of mine soon. Craig

Whatever tractor is hooked to it, each XL Specialized 120 HDG lowboy DM model comes with both 1- and 2-axle boosters stingers and a gooseneck extension designed for a 2-axle jeep dolly use:

Guy: The IH Xl trucks are pretty cool. They are beefy looking and made well. I cannot say the same about the lowboys. They are a little cheesy. Outriggers do not work, but it's the first truck with both jeep and stinger since Alan Smith. Of course the DCP 1/64 trucks have them and they are great. CAW
